You may want to take this with a grain – or maybe a block – of salt until there’s other verification, but Fox Sports News is reporting this morning that Indiana has offered its basketball coaching job to Tony Bennett.
The Fox Sports report by Jeff Goodman says IU, according to two unidentified sources, offered Bennett, 38, the job yesterday, one day after his Washington State team lost to No. 1 North Carolina in WSU’s first Sweet 16 game since 1941.
Bennett, the son of former Wisconsin and WSU coach Dick Bennett and brother of former IU women’s coach Kathi Bennett, is 52-17 in two seasons at Washington State.
