IU to officially announce Chuck Martin as new assistant coach

Former Marist coach Chuck Martin was reportedly named Indiana’s new assistant coach at the beginning of the month, and he’s had a line and an e-mail address on the IU athletics staff directory for much of June. Now he’ll apparently have his introductory press conference.

Per a release from an IU spokesman, the Hoosiers will hold a 2 p.m. press conference to introduce its newest staff member. Martin was head coach at Marist for five seasons from 2008-2013, compiling a 41-117 record. Prior to that, he held assistant coaching positions at Memphis, Drexel, St. John’s and Massachusetts. He replaces Kenny Johnson, who left for Louisville in May. Like Johnson, Martin has East Coast recruiting ties. He’s from the Bronx, N.Y., and played his high school basketball at the famed St. Raymond’s.
