Former Indiana basketball standout Calbert Cheaney is leaving IU to become an assistant basketball coach at St. Louis under former Indiana player Jim Crews.
Cheaney has been director of operations under coach Tom Crean since 2011.
A St. Louis spokesman confirmed Cheaney’s appointment on Tuesday night.
TOM CREAN'S STATEMENT:
“He brought a great deal to us and in turn, I think he gained valuable insight into the profession during his time at IU,” Crean’s statement said. “He has come to have a strong desire to return to the floor coaching and can do so with someone he trusts and respects in Jim Crews. He will do an outstanding job and there is no doubt in my mind that he has a tremendous future coaching at any level.”
