IN coach Tom Crean has been fired after nine often lackluster seasons.
Already eliminated from the NIT in the first round by the time the first round of the NCAA Tournament began on Thursday afternoon, in opted for the ultimate news dump timing, announcing shortly after tipoff of the Notre Dame-Princeton game that it had fired coach Tom Crean after nine seasons.
Some people will say Tom Crean should have been fired, but when they do you can remind them that Tom Crean did some things in 2016 that coaches being paid at least $5 million didn't do.
"Ultimately, we seek more consistent, high levels of success, and we will not shy away from our expectations", Glass said.
Tom Crean put IN basketball back IN the national conversation. The other three were Louisville in 1985-1986, Missouri in 2002-2003, and Kentucky in 2011-2012. That missing the NCAA tournament feels like a failure is a testament to the work Crean has done after the dark days (a 6-25 record in 2008-09) of his early tenure. He went 166-135 in his career, the second-worst winning percentage among coaches who lasted more than 100 games at IU.
It could be all too possible that Tom Crean peaked with IN far too early into his career. We wish him well.

She tweeted out a photo of the two of them and wrote, "Religiously profiling son of "The Greatest" will not make us safe". The Department of Homeland Security and JetBlue did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News request for comment.
Glass said that the national search for a new coach would begin immediately. Crean won two Big Ten regular-season championships over the last five seasons but went 18-16 this year and missed the NCAA Tournament for the fifth time in nine years - including each of his first three seasons after taking over a gutted team following an NCAA scandal. He captured two Big Ten titles, advanced to the Sweet Sixteen three times and held onto a number one ranking for eleven weeks during the 2012-2013 season.
Crean, who arrived from Marquette in 2008, finishes his in career with a 166-135 record.
"We want somebody who is a proven victor, somebody who is a proven recruiter who has the ability and desire to recruit in the Midwest and especially in Indiana", Glass said. He said school president Michael McRobbie and the Board of Trustees have given Glass full authority to choose the Hoosiers' next leader.
IN now has a vacancy at its head coach position.
"While I will not be establishing a formal search committee or advisory committee, I will consult with basketball experts from around the country and throughout the State of Indiana, including many former Indiana University basketball players", Glass said.
