Bruiser to Indiana
Reports say that later this week, IU will announce Bru as an assistant on Archie Miller's staff.

RE: Bruiser to Indiana
That is a bit surprising. I really thought he would be head coach somewhere or not coach. The only exception I figured was on the table was an assistant for Cal. Also surprised at IU since he seemed semi close with Crean and was at a some practices for him this past season. Good for Bru though. Best of luck for him.

Bruiser should still be coaching at Drexel. If things do not turn around, hopefully Ashley Howard is the next coach.

I'm guessing if IU turns it around with Bruiser on staff, he then could get a better head coaching job again in 2-3 years.

Eh. He is pretty much limited at this point in his career. He has been at 2 places for 20 combined years. Teams know what they are getting with him. Unfortunately for him, the game is changing and his style of basketball is being eliminated. Realistically this is really the peak he can do (unless he joins Cal's UK staff). Bruiser is a high character guy who knows how to coach defense. But that is it. If he gets another head coaching job, I have a hard time believing it will be at a higher level than where Drexel was/is.

RE: Bruiser to Indiana
Bruiser is also an amazing recruiter, he was able to sign some talented players with limited resources.

- dreadful facilities
- terrible tv contract
- appalling financial resources

I'd really be surprised. The only Dance experience he has in all of his years was because of the team that he was handed by Calipari.

Personally, I think that this is the perfect situation for Bruiser to be in. His ego is too big to be a head coach and let anyone else do anything, but as a second guy on the bench whose responsibility is to run the defense, he can do a good job. Like Dan said: he cant do much else. Lord knows the guy can't coach an offense.
