Report: Clippers' Mike Woodson Has "High Interest" In The Indiana Job

An NBA assistant coach is reportedly very interested in the Indiana job.

Indiana's men's basketball program needs a new head coach. The Hoosiers fired Tom Crean after nine sometimes good, sometimes bad seasons in Bloomington, Ind.

Various names have surfaced for IU's upcoming search. Most of them are successful college coaches like UCLA's Steve Alford, Virginia's Tony Bennett and Wichita State's Gregg Marshall.

A new one just popped up: the NBA's Mike Woodson.

From ESPN:

Doubt he can get it, but told by numerous sources former IU standout and current LA Clippers assistant Mike Woodson has high level of interest in Indiana job.

Woodson, 58, starred collegiately at Indiana from 1976-80 under Bob Knight. He played in the NBA for more than a decade and then went into coaching. Woodson was the Atlanta Hawks head coach from 2004-10 and the New York Knicks head coach from 2012-14. He's been an assistant with the Clippers since then.
