Mike Woodson won’t coach Indiana vs. Minnesota

IU basketball head coach Mike Woodson will not coach Indiana on Wednesday evening as he recovers from COVID, the school announced in a release.

Associate head coach Yasir Rosemond, who had the primary scout for tonight’s game, will handle all post-game media obligations.

An IU representative told The Daily Hoosier there is no acting head coach tonight, and the staff will be sharing the decision making responsibilities.

Woodson also missed his radio show on Monday night but host Don Fischer said he was at a wake in New Jersey.

Rosemond is in his second season at IU and first as associate head coach. He arrived at IU with more than 15 years of experience as a collegiate coach and was named an assistant coach with the Hoosiers in April 2021, soon after Woodson was hired.

Woodson is 34-20 in two seasons leading the Hoosiers.  This is the first game he has missed during his short stint leading the program.

Indiana and Minnesota tip at 9 p.m. Eastern (BTN) in Minneapolis.
