BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Indiana University will hire Marquette's Tom Crean as its basketball coach and is expected to introduce him at a news conference Wednesday.
University trustee Philip Eskew confirmed the hiring.
Eskew said Crean had signed a letter-of-intent with the university and was meeting with his team Tuesday night.
The hiring comes near the end of a tumultuous six-week period in which former Hooisers coach Kelvin Sampson resigned amid an NCAA scandal, interim coach Dan Dakich replaced him and then lost four of seven games.
