Tom Crean Announced As New ESPN College Basketball Analyst

ESPN announced Tom Crean as a new college basketball analyst for 2017-18.

Hoosiers may recognize the new face on ESPN this upcoming basketball season. The network announced this week Tom Crean will be a college basketball analyst for 2017-18.

Crean had been a college basketball coach for roughly 18 years at Indiana University and Marquette.

IU fired the former head coach in March after nearly 10 seasons with the team.

“We are really excited to be starting this new endeavor with ESPN,” Crean says. “I’m definitely looking forward to trying to add value, add insights and share some experiences.”

Former Georgetown coach John Thompson and former Arkansas coach Jimmy Dykes will also be joining the new ESPN broadcast team.

“College basketball is a great game. There is no question about it,” Crean says. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Coverage assignments have not been announced.
