Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com reports today that Indiana Coach Kelvin “Sampson was informed early Thursday that he will no longer be the coach at Indiana, numerous sources told FOXSports.com.”
“The official announcement is expected to come Friday, when the university’s self-imposed seven-day investigation period ends. When asked to confirm Sampson’s firing, Indiana director of media relations J.D. Campbell told FOXSports.com, ‘I don’t know that to be true.’”
WTHR in Indianapolis also reports Sampson is officially out and his replacement for the rest of the season will be assistant coach Dan Dakich.
Now IU fans are hoping Dakich will soon become shades of Steve Fisher.
