What is happening here? (or a 4th Indiana assistant coach hired by another school)

Brent Pease. Corey Raymond. Jerry Montgomery.

Now Jemal Singleton, it seems.

Oklahoma State has hired Singleton in an unknown capacity, the Oklahoman is reporting.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to work at Oklahoma State and with Coach Gundy,” Singleton said. “It’s a phenomenal program. It’s a school I knew a lot about while growing up in Texas and I’m excited to now be a Cowboy myself.”

Singleton was hired last week by Indiana to coach the running backs. He’s the fourth assistant coach to leave the program shortly after accepting the position.

All have gone on to more established programs — Pease back to Boise State, Raymond to Nebraska, Montgomery to Michigan and now Singleton to Oklahoma State.

UPDATE, 2:54 p.m. Dustin Dopirak here. Indiana is confirming that Singleton has resigned his position and Oklahoma State has a release up here. My first attempt to contact Singleton resulted in me leaving a voice mail. We’ll keep you updated.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaune Moore remain very good players.

Purdue’s seniors were the difference on Tuesday in Mackey Arena, combining for 40 points in a 67-53 Purdue win against Indiana.

“It’ll be interesting to play these guys someday, when these two aren’t in there dominating the way they do,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said.

Overall, Crean said the Hoosiers matched the No. 14 Boilermakers in terms of physicality and did a good job of limiting Johnson (while he had 15 points, he was 4-of-10 from the field).

Will Sheehey continued to play with a lot of energy that leads to production (a team-high 14 points), while Victor Oladipo had 11 deflections.

Jordan Hulls played through the holds and grabs that happen on the road in the Big Ten, and Verdell Jones played more minutes (28) than he was expecting.

Still, the Hoosiers struggled to make enough shots to take a real run at the rival Boilermakers. Indiana was 0-of-7 from 3-point range in the first half and 2-of-13 for the game, never getting the baskets it needed when it had to have them.
