Statement via Indiana Media Relations from former head coach Kelvin Sampson:
I have made the very difficult decision to leave my position as head coach of the men’s basketball team at Indiana University. While I’ m saddened that I will not have the opportunity to continue to coach these student athletes, I feel that it is in the best interest of the program for me to step aside at this time.
I wish my players and staff nothing but the best for the remainder of the season. They are all truly incredible people. As I have previously stated, I welcome the opportunity to go before the Committee on Infractions in June. I look forward to getting back on the basketball court in the very near future.
