Official announcement to come tomorrow morning.

Hopefully IU can finally hire a coach both competent AND scrupulous this time around.

Ah, IU. Went from one of the cleanest coaches in history to one of the dirtiest in a decade, complaining all the while.

That said, they've been pretty good and this will be an attractive position.

I dont get how people call bob knight a coach without any problems. people tend to forget that he choked one of his players. Dont get me wrong he is a legend but his history isn't clean either

Bob Knight won the right way. His kids graduated and he did not cheat.

IU will hire a guy with ties to the program for sure this time around.
