Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self on Doc Sadler joining Iowa State’s staff as an assistant coach. Sadler joined KU’s staff July 2012 and served as the director of men’s basketball operations for the 2012-13 season.
Bill Self: “I’m excited for Doc. He did a great job here. All the players loved him, respected him and certainly he added a great additional set of eyes and mindset to our staff. He will definitely be missed.
Doc is a terrific coach and wants to be on the floor. Fred’s (Hoiberg) position at Iowa State opened up and he wasted no time in coming after Doc. Doc will be a huge asset for their team not only from a recruiting standpoint, but also as an on-the-floor coach. He’s a terrific coach that loved what he did last year but missed getting a chance to work with the guys in practice. I think this is a win-win for everybody.
I have several scenarios (about a replacement) playing out. In a perfect world I would like to have it done next week, but I’m not sure that is possible. I do anticipate announcing what we will do with that position in the next week or two.”
