Following the firing of Tom Crean, Indiana AD Fred Glass also announced the following tidbit in today’s press release:
No search committee. Release: Glass "will consult with basketball experts from around the country and throughout the State of Indiana" #iubb— Zach Osterman (@ZachOsterman) March 16, 2017
This is possibly the most important line of the release, as “search committee” is the two words any fan does not want to hear during a coaching search. By not using a search committee, Indiana will have less cooks in the kitchen when deciding on a replacement, relying only on people who truly understand what makes Assembly Hall and Bloomington one of the most attractive college basketball jobs on the planet.
As more information is made available about the coaching search, we will keep you updated.
