BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -While Indiana prepares for its first-round game in the NCAA tournament, the school said Monday that a former trustee will lead a 10-member committee to search for a replacement for disgraced coach Kelvin Sampson.
The head job became vacant last month when Sampson resigned amid allegations of NCAA violations. Dan Dakich, an assistant under Sampson and a former Indiana player and assistant under Bob Knight, took over as interim coach for the rest of the season.
Harry Gonso, a former Indiana quarterback and attorney, will lead the search committee, which includes athletic director Rick Greenspan and former Hoosier player Wayne Radford.
No timetable for the selection was announced, and Gonso said committee members would not comment publicly on progress until a decision is made.
``Harry Gonso is the ideal person to lead a search of this importance,'' school President Michael A. McRobbie said in a statement. ``Harry has a deep appreciation for both our academic mission and our athletic traditions. He is well aware of the high expectations our fans and alumni have for our men's basketball program.''
The Hoosiers lost their final two regular-season games and their only game in the Big Ten tournament last week. They will open the NCAA tournament on Friday against Arkansas.
