I spoke with Indiana athletic director Fred Glass this evening about the women’s basketball program and the coaching status of Felisha Legette-Jack. The short answer was that it is a program under review, just as each sport is at the conclusion of a season. Glass emphasized that this review was not “something extraordinary or an unusual process” in the wake of the Hoosiers’ 6-24 record, the third consecutive losing season under Legette-Jack.
“We do this with all programs,” the IU AD said. “With 19 coaches, I guess that would be four times 19, and (we’ve) only made changes twice.”
He noted that the lines of communication have been open with Legette-Jack throughout the year, regardless of the record.
“While we’re in the midst of internal conversations and review, it’s been a conversation with Felisha all season. We meet every week,” Glass said. “We’ve been transparent with each other and have been communicating this week since the season ended last week.
“With that going on, it’s not appropriate or productive to talk about (the factors) until we sort through it internally.”
Questioned about the concern of a perceived limbo situation impacting the program, particularly recruiting, Glass declined to set any kind of timetable.
“I just put that in the category of not commenting externally until Felisha and I sort through this internally as we always do,” he said. “It’s slippery slope to talk about those kinds of things.”
