Flint was most recently the head coach of Drexel, a post at which he served for 15 seasons before getting fired after the 2015-16 campaign. Flint got his coaching start as an assistant at Coppin State before joining John Calipari’s staff as an assistant at UMass in 1989. He was promoted to head coach after Calipari left UMass for the NBA. Flint has a career 331-289 record as a head coach — a .534 winning percentage.
Since his firing at Drexel, Flint has been what philly.com’s Mike Jensen termed a “basketball tourist,” traveling and learning from other coaches.
This report comes a week after Indiana’s hiring of Miller as its new head coach, replacing the fired Tom Crean after the Hoosiers missed the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in Crean’s nine seasons leading the program.
