LSU fired Johnny Jones after a dismal 10-21 season in which the Tigers lost 16 consecutive games.
Crean would be a nice get for the LSU program as the Tigers have struggled to find any type of consistency on the court.
During Crean’s time as head coach, the Hoosiers compiled a 166-134 record, including two Big Ten conference championships and three Sweet Sixteen berths. Despite being a year removed from winning Big Ten Coach of the Year honors, the Hoosiers parted ways with Crean.
