IU has just distributed a news release announcing Crean’s hiring as Indiana’s 28th men’s basketball coach. It announces that Crean and IU have agreed to an eight-year $18.24 million deal that will pay him an average of $2.3 million per season.
Here are some of the quotes from the release:
“I am very pleased to have a coach of Tom Crean’s quality come to Indiana University to lead our men’s basketball program,” IU president Michael McRobbie said. “Coach Crean has had great success on the court but he is also known for his community involvement and his commitment to the academic success of players. I am very pleased to welcome him to Indiana.”
“I am so appreciative of the commitment to excellence that Tom has demonstrated in the past and the many outstanding qualities, experiences and attributes that he possess that will help us achieve our goals of academic and athletic excellence in our basketball program,” IU athletic director Rick Greenspan said.
“The committee considered a wide range of excellent candidates and we are confident that in Tom Crean, we found a coach who will be a great fit for Indiana,” search committee chair Harry Gonso said.
“I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are to join the Indiana University family,” Crean said. “This is one of the elite institutions and basketball programs in America and we take the responsibility of upholding that tradition very seriously. We want to build a program that the people of Indiana can be proud of, both on and off the basketball court.”
