Crean out at Indiana

Tom Crean’s tenure as IU men’s basketball coach, nearly nine full years long, is over.
In a press release distributed shortly after noon Thursday, Athletics Director Fred Glass said that, “after deliberative thought and evaluation, including multiple meetings with Tom about the future, I have decided to make a change in the leadership of our men’s basketball program.”

Crean’s departure ends the longest tenure in the Indiana hot seat since Bob Knight’s firing in 2000. The 50-year old won two regular-season Big Ten championships during his time in Bloomington, qualified for four NCAA tournaments in the past six seasons and advanced to three Sweet 16s.
