Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg has been released from the hospital, less than a week after open-heart surgery.

Hoiberg tweeted a picture of himself being wheeled out of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, on Thursday.

Hoiberg had surgery last week to replace his aortic valve. He’s expected to need 4-6 weeks to recover.

Hoiberg retired from the NBA following the 2004-05 season following heart issues. He just completed his fifth season at Iowa State.
