Indiana assistant coach Rob Senderoff’s employment status is indeed in question, as rumors swirling on several Internet message boards have indicated.
University spokesman Larry MacIntyre was asked minutes ago whether Senderoff was still employed by the university. His answer: “I don’t know.”
Senderoff’s future has been the subject of debate among leaders within the Indiana athletic department and university administration for two weeks, according to several sources close to the situation.
Now, as Indiana gets ready to release the Ice Miller report on new recruiting violations, Senderoff will apparently be dispatched. According to what Indiana has released so far, Senderoff made most of the impermissible phone calls and also was involved with the 3-way calls that violated previous sanctions.
Senderoff joined Kelvin Sampson’s staff prior to last season, and has previously coached at Kent State, Towson, Yale and Fordham.
Through his efforts, Indiana has been able to recruit the fertile New York City area and received a verbal commitment from Devin Ebanks, one of the top 20 players in the class of 2008. Several highly regarded New York players attended Hoosier Hysteria, including Lance Stephenson, who is considered one of the better players to come out of the city in the last five years.
