Jeff Goodman says Sampson has been fired
At this point, I’m not really sure what to believe. We’ve had three different reports today on Kelvin Sampson’s future as the head basketball coach at Indiana. The latest is from Jeff Goodman of Foxsports.com:
Sampson was informed early Thursday that he will no longer be the coach at Indiana, numerous sources told FOXSports.com. The official announcement is expected to come Friday, when the university’s self-imposed seven-day investigation period ends. When asked to confirm Sampson’s firing, Indiana director of media relations J.D. Campbell told FOXSports.com, “I don’t know that to be true.” Campbell also said no official announcement was currently scheduled for Friday.
