Woo wee coach!

As one of the most popular and successful coaches in Iowa State Athletics history, Johnny Orr is permanently honored in the building he helped put on the map, Hilton Coliseum.

"Johnny's", a large sports bar-themed gathering area for donors, is located on the coliseum's east end. The lounge area features 14 flat screen televisions, three (3) bar areas, a food service area and coat check. The flooring in Johnny’s is the actual game floor from historic State Gym.

A life-sized statue of Coach Orr is on display in the lounge area. Trophy cases, with memorabilia from his tenure, are located in front of the Johnny’s entrance on the east concourse of Hilton Coliseum.

Access to Johnny’s is available during basketball seasons for the following donors:

Men's basketball: Directors ($12,500) Level donors with men's basketball season tickets and men's CourtCYd seat holders.

Women's basketball: Directors ($12,500) and Victory ($5,000) Level donors with women's basketball season tickets and women's CourtCYd seat holders.
