In his nine previous years as coach at Marquette, Crean averaged more than 20 wins a season and led the Golden Eagles to five NCAA Tournaments. He joined IU in April 2008, as the school's 28th head basketball coach.
Since his arrival at IU, Crean and his staff have worked to recruit one of the top 10 classes in the country for 2009. Andy Katz, senior writer for ESPN, said of Crean: " ... It's hard to find a coach who emulates a business model more than Tom Crean."
