You thought you’d sneak it by us, huh?
The NCAA tournament started today at 12:16 p.m. Literally one minute later, Indiana announced it had fired head coach Tom Crean. It’s almost like they didn’t want us to notice.
But we did. We did notice. Indiana fired Tom Crean.
The Friday/holiday news dump is the oldest trick in the book for trying to bury bad news, but this takes it to another level. Everyone saw what the Hoosiers were trying to do here and rightfully called them out on it.
Indiana firing Tom Crean literally seconds after the NCAA Tournament tips off is a news dump of the absolute highest order.— Alexander Abnos (@AnAbnos) March 16, 2017
Kudos to Indiana for the Thursday morning news dump.— Paul Oren (@NWIOren) March 16, 2017
Indiana fired Tom Crean, just to be clear. We all saw it, even though Notre Dame was playing Princeton.
