UPDATE: IU released the following statement regarding former assistant coach Ed Schilling:
Indiana University men’s basketball coach Archie Miller has announced that Ed Schilling will not remain as an assistant coach for the Hoosiers and will look to pursue other opportunities in basketball.
“I appreciate Ed for his hard work and dedication to our program and wish nothing but the best for he and his family,” Archie Miller said. “His contributions were extremely beneficial to what we are trying to accomplish.”
“It was a blessing to have the opportunity to return home to my family, friends and high school coaching comrades. I’ll forever be appreciative of Indiana University and the fine IU Athletic Department and Basketball Program,” said Schilling. “I’m looking forward to my next chapter in God’s plan.”
The original report follows:
Ed Schilling is no longer with the IU men’s basketball program according to a report by 247Sports.
Schilling, a native of Lebanon, Indiana, spent two seasons at Indiana after spending four years as an assistant coach at UCLA along with Steve Alford.
Schilling arrived at UCLA in April 2013 after having spent the previous four seasons as head coach at Park Tudor High School in Indianapolis. He guided Yogi Ferrell and the Panthers to an 87-18 record in four years, securing two IHSAA Class 2A state titles and a runner-up finish.
Schilling arrived at Indiana with a reputation for player development and recruiting.
His pre-draft preparation included working with over 60 high-profile young players, including No. 1 NBA Draft selection Greg Oden, Mike Conley, Mario Chalmers, Gordon Hayward, Carl Landry, Jeff Teague, Marquis Teague, Cody Zeller and many others.
At Indiana, Schilling was part of a staff that produced the No. 7 recruiting class nationally in 2018.
The school has not commented on the reasoning behind the change or their plans for a replacement at this time.
