    Iowa State basketball coach Fred Hoiberg perhaps anticipated his dancing skills would be an Internet hit, because he texted his daughter an early apology over the potential embarrassment.

    Hoiberg's locker room dancing was caught on tape after the Cyclones clinched a spot into the NCAA’s Sweet Sixteen by defeating the North Carolina Tar Heels 85-83.

    “I just danced in the locker room…I’m guessing I probably embarrassed you…sorry!” Hoiberg said in a text message to his daughter, Paige, that she captured with a screen shot then tweeted out.

    “Ahahhahaha don’t even currrr #nyc #SWEET16,” the teen wrote in a caption.

    The Cyclones are scheduled to play UConn next on Friday, March 28.
