Former Indiana University coach Kelvin Sampson has agreed to become a Milwaukee Bucks assistant under Scott Skiles, a person with knowledge of the hiring told The Associated Press on Friday.
The person, who requested anonymity because Sampson has not yet signed a contract, said Sampson is expected to sign with the team as soon as later in the day.
It's a second chance for Sampson, who resigned as the Hoosiers' coach Feb. 22 and accepted a $750,000 buyout after an NCAA report charged him with five major NCAA rules violations.
Skiles' interest in Sampson as an assistant was reported by espn.com last week.
