Indiana will hire former Marist head coach Chuck Martin as its new assistant, according to a report by Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com.
IU has not yet confirmed the report. If it is true, Martin would replace Kenny Johnson, who left to accept a job on Rick Pitino's staff at Louisville.
Martin has made a number of stops around the country, most recently with Marist from 2008-13, where he went 41-117 and was fired after five seasons.
Martin has also been an assistant coach at Manhattan, Drexel, UMASS and St. John's. He spent last season as a scout for the Oklahoma City Thunder, who were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs on Saturday night. That could explain the timing of the news.
Martin is an East Coast native -- he grew up in the Bronx -- which would make him an ideal replacement for Johnson, who spent much of his time recruiting kids in the East.
We will have more on this story as it develops.
