Siena coach Fran McCaffery has accepted an offer to be Iowa's coach, according to the Albany Times Union.
A formal announcement is expected Monday.
McCaffery spent five years at Siena and led the Saints to each of the past three NCAA tournaments. The 50-year-old Philadelphia native was also a candidate at St. John's and Seton Hall. He replaces Todd Lickliter, who was fired after three seasons.
Iowa finished 4-14 in the Big Ten this season.
