BREAKING: Indiana Fires Head Coach Tom Crean

The Indiana Hoosiers have fired head men's basketball coach Tom Crean, the school announced.

Crean, who was tasked with rebuilding the Indiana program after sanctions brought about by Kelvin Sampson's tenure, went 166-135 in nine years in Bloomington, including three Sweet 16 appearances. He also led Indiana to Big Ten titles in 2013 and 2016, but the Hoosiers missed the NCAA Tournament entirely in 2014 and 2017.

This year was perhaps the most disappointing of Crean's tenure. Indiana was ranked as high as No. 3 early in the season following wins over Kansas and North Carolina, but also were upset by Fort Wayne and finished the year with a 18-16 record. They lost 75-63 to Georgia Tech in the first round of the NIT earlier this week..

Dayton's Archie Miller and Wichita State's Gregg Marshall are the two early frontrunners to replace Crean.
