BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Former NBA player Roshown McLeod has been hired as an assistant coach at Indiana.
New coach Tom Crean said Thursday that McLeod will work with the Hoosiers' inside players. The 6-foot-8 McLeod played at St. John's and Duke and was a first-round pick by Atlanta in the 1998 NBA draft.
He later played for Philadelphia and Boston and averaged 7.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 113 career games. He later was an assistant at Fairfield and coach and director of basketball operations at Woodward Academy in Atlanta.
McLeod called his new job "a great opportunity" and said Indiana is "the cream of the crop when you talk about great college basketball tradition."
