During his tenure he led Northern Iowa to an overall record of 90 wins and 63 losses (90–63), the 2004 Missouri Valley Conference tournament championship and to appearances in the 2004, 2005 and 2006 NCAA Tournaments.[5] He officially resigned his position with Northern Iowa on March 21, 2006, and accepted the same one at Iowa State.[5] McDermott remained as the Cyclones' head coach for four season between 2007 and 2010, and during his tenure led them to an overall record of 59 wins and 68 losses (59–68).[6] His marquee victory at Iowa State came on March 6, 2010, against No. 5 Kansas State. This was his only victory over a ranked team while with the Cyclones. On April 26, 2010, he resigned from Iowa State and accepted the same position at Creighton.[6] The contract with Creighton was a reported ten-year deal, worth well over one million dollars per season.[7]
