Indiana has hired a new staff member as former Marist head coach Chuck Martin will join the Hoosiers, according to a report from Jon Rothstein at CBSSports.com.
Martin replaces former assistant coach Kenny Johnson, who took the same position at Louisville earlier this spring.
The 44-year-old Martin was the head coach at Marist for five seasons and finished with a 41-117 career record. The Red Foxes never finished better than eighth in the MAAC with Martin at the helm.
Martin also spent time under John Calipari from 2006-2008 as an assistant coach at Memphis — including the 2007-08 season the Tigers made the national title game — as well as stops at St. John’s, Drexel, UMass and Manhattan.
A native of New York and graduate of Monmouth in 1993, Martin played point guard for two seasons after spending two seasons at Champlain Junior College.
