Hoiberg Gives His Team the Day Off on Election Day
Nebraska men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg will give his team the day off on Election Day, November 3rd.
Hoiberg announced the move on Twitter yesterday. He wrote: “We will encourage our student-athletes to register and use their right to vote so that their voices can be heard.”
Hoiberg is the first Nebraska coach to announce that decision. But, there’s a growing movement among coaches in the nation urging the NCAA to take a break from athletics on Election Day.
