Indiana has made it official this afternoon. Archie Miller has his coaching staff in place.
As Jeff Goodman first reported on Sunday, Bruiser Flint, Tom Ostrom, and Ed Schilling will be Miller’s three assistants. Flint is a former head coach at Drexel and UMass, and should also be helpful in recruiting the East Coast for the Hoosiers. Ostrom comes over from Dayton with Miller, and has extensive experience as an assistant at a few schools in the southeast, including Arkansas and Florida. Ostrom graduated from Minnesota in 1997, when he worked with the squad that made a Final Four under Clem Haskins. Finally, Ed Schilling comes from UCLA, and has extensive ties to the state of Indiana. After missing out on some key recruits from within Indiana in recent years, Schilling should help IU regain its recruiting footing in the Hoosier State.
Bill Comer, who served as Director of Basketball Operations at Dayton for Miller, will join the new head coach at IU in the same capacity. In addition, Derek Elston will continue as Director of Player Development. Elston, who hails from Tipton and played for IU from 2009-13, served in the same role under Tom Crean for two years.
