Archie Miller’s coaching staff at IU is now official, according to Jeff Goodman at ESPN.
Archie Miller's staff at Indiana will be Bruiser Flint, Tom Ostrom (Dayton) and Ed Schilling (UCLA), source told ESPN. Bill Comar as DOBO.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 9, 2017
As we wrote on Friday, Schilling was reported to likely be leaving UCLA for Indiana. The move could be pivotal for IU, as Schilling is a well-known coach in Indiana circles and was Yogi Ferrell’s high school coach at Park Tudor.
We also already reported that Flint would be joining the IU staff as well. A former UMass and Drexel head coach, Flint is well-connected with east coast recruiting, and is a product of the Calipari coaching tree.
Ostrom has been a longtime assistant of Miller’s at Dayton, so he’ll move to Bloomington along with Archie. In addition, Ostrom has been an assistant at both Arkansas and Florida.
All in all, this seems like a very well-rounded staff of local and national recruiters, as well as a key component of the staff that made the Archie Miller era successful in Dayton. Thus, Indiana fans should have reason to feel optimistic for the team going forward, both in the near and distant future.
