Sampson to go from Sooners to Hoosiers
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana will hire Kelvin Sampson as its next basketball coach, delivering him from an Oklahoma team under investigation for possible recruiting violations to lead one of the most prestigious programs in the country.
Sampson broke the news to his Sooners team Tuesday. Indiana players were also informed, one of the Hoosier players' relatives told The Associated Press.
Details were being worked out Tuesday afternoon, and the deal was expected to be announced shortly, said a person close to the talks who requested anonymity because negotiations were ongoing. No news conference was scheduled.
The 50-year-old Sampson, AP's Coach of the Year in 1995, will replace Mike Davis, who announced last month he was resigning. Davis went 115-79 in six seasons as head coach, was the first Indiana coach to win 20 games in each of his first three seasons and led the Hoosiers to the national championship game in 2002, two seasons after Bob Knight was fired.
The Hoosiers were 19-12 this year.
