Here’s what I learned from several sources today: some way, some how, Indiana has contacted Tony Bennett to begin the process of letting him know that it might be interested in having him coach the Hoosiers if he has any interest in doing so.
I don’t know that it has gotten any further than that.
We’ve posted below stories from two of the most noted national basketball writers in the country in Andy Katz and Jeff Goodman. Both have been quick to jump on this story (partially because they have been locked in a good old fashioned reporter’s duel for sometime now.) Anyway, to summarize, Goodman says the offer has been made. Katz says it hasn’t.
Now we’ve got Gary Parrish jumping into the fray, and his story sounds to me to be the most accurate. It’s the closest to what I’m hearing.
I’ll have more as this story develops.
