Indiana head coach Tom Crean appeared Tuesday night in Jeffersonville (IN) at a fund raising event for the Greater Clark County Schools.

The event, “Coaches Raising the Bar for Kids,” also featured former Louisville head coach Denny Crum and current Louisville women’s coach Jeff Walz and raised over $36,000 that will go towards helping students prepare to take the ACT.

A couple of quick highlights:

– During the Q & A portion of the event, Crum told Crean he’d love to come watch a game at Assembly Hall. Crean countered that he’d let him sit in his seat since he rarely uses it during the game. Crum then said, “I’ve noticed,” which drew a smile from Crean and a few laughs from the crowd. No word yet on whether the Hall of Fame coach will take in a game at Assembly Hall.

– Crean re-iterated that he consumes news on conference expansion and re-alignment just as the fans do: television, the Internet and the newspaper. He also stated that he hopes those in decision-making positions will do what’s best for the schools and the conferences involved.

– Crean said he is open to a series with Louisville in the future.

Here’s video of Crean speaking to the media prior to the event:
