“Not really sure how to start this but just need to thank everyone who has been along for this journey,” he wrote on Instagram at the time.

“I could say so much more, but I’m going to leave it at that for now. Being a Hawkeye has been amazing.”

McCaffery went on to sign an offer to join the Indiana Pacers’ staff, the Des Moines Register reported in May.

“I’ll play dummy defense, run the scout team, help coaches on film stuff, help on video projects if they need, scouting reports if they need,” he said of his role as a team assistant.
