Two Big 12 Coaches Surface in Indiana Coaching Search

NCAA Basketball: Final Four-Coaches Press Conference

The Indiana Hoosiers fired head coach Archie Miller on Monday after a 12-15 season.

Miller went 67-58 in four seasons and didn’t lead the Hoosiers to any NCAA tournament appearances. He spent six seasons as Dayton’s coach before joining Indiana, going 139-63 with four NCAA tournament appearances.

And with a big-time job like Indiana open, already two Big 12 names are surfacing as a possible replacement: Baylor’s Scott Drew and Texas Tech’s Chris Beard.


Baylor is heading into the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 seed. This is the first time Baylor has ever been a No. 1 seed in the history of March Madness.

Meantime, Chris Beard has also had unprecedented success at his Big 12 school and is getting ready for the Big Dance with a No. 6 seed, which come two years after the Red Raiders advanced to the National Championship Game.

After the Big 12 punched seven tickets to the NCAA Tournament this year, there are several coaches, including Oklahoma State’s Mike Boynton, who could find themselves candidates for openings around the country. It’s a good problem to have, but of course the Big 12 needs to do everything it can to retain their guys.
