Former Indiana assistant Ray McCallum will be announced as the new coach at the University of Detroit Mercy today.
McCallum, who has head coaching experience at Ball State and Houston, came to Indiana along with Kelvin Sampson two years ago. But it was well known that he wanted a head coaching job and was waiting for the right opportunity to come along; he turned down Indiana State last year.
It appears as though McCallum never sought a spot on Tom Crean’s staff. He had been mentioned as a possible replacement for Stan Joplin at Toledo, and many MAC people pushed hard for his return to the conference (Joplin, by the way, has been mentioned as a possible Crean assistant on the message boards but won’t be, according to sources).
McCallum leaving is a huge blow to the Bloomington North program. Ray McCallum Jr. was quickly developing into one of the top players in the state. He’s a high Division I prospect at point guard.
The Titans play in the Horizon League and are probably best known for being the place where the loudest college hoops fan of them all, Dick Vitale, coached in the 1970s.
