He was impressed with the chemistry between Iowa State’s coaching staff during his visit to Ames.

“I like how everybody’s involved, as in the head coach and assistant coaches,” Pierce said. “Like, all the coaches have a say. I feel like all the coaches are always positive and it definitely rubs off on the players. It seems like they’re all proud to be there.”
