Archie Miller announced that Ed Schilling will no longer be an assistant coach for the Hoosiers, according to an IU press release on Thursday. Schilling will “pursue other opportunities in basketball,” the release said.

“It was a blessing to have the opportunity to return home to my family, friends and high school coaching comrades,” Schilling said in the release. “I’ll forever be appreciative of Indiana University and the fine IU Athletic Department and Basketball Program. I’m looking forward to my next chapter in God’s plan.”

This is the first time an assistant coach will leave IU under Miller. “I appreciate Ed for his hard work and dedication to our program and wish nothing but the best for he and his family,” Miller said. “His contributions were extremely beneficial to what we are trying to accomplish.”

Schilling, a native of Lebanon, Indiana, was the head coach at Park Tudor High School for four seasons before becoming an assistant at UCLA under former Hoosier Steve Alford. During his years at Park Tudor, he won consecutive state championships with Yogi Ferrell as his point guard.
