Indiana University has amended the sanctions it imposed on the men’s basketball program, according to a source close to the athletic department.
The school has granted new coach Tom Crean ten days to go on the road and recruit.
When Indiana put the punishment in place last fall, it limited Kelvin Sampson to 10 recruting days from Oct. 5 2007 through July 31, 2008.
Sampson used most of those days. Dan Dakich used the rest of them.
Crean arrived at IU with the understanding that he’d be unable to go out and recruit. But he said Thursday that the restriction has been more difficult to deal with than he anticipated.
Crean likely won’t wait long to get out and see players; he may start as soon as tomorrow.
