INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indianapolis television station WTHR is reporting that Indiana men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson won't coach another game for the Hoosiers.

The station reports today that assistant coach Dan Dakich will take over as interim coach for the rest of the season.

The NCAA has accused Sampson and some members of his staff of five major recruiting violations over improper telephone calls to high school players. The school is reviewing the allegations and has set tomorrow as a deadline for a report and recommendation on action in the case.

WTHR also reports that Sampson and IU will either reach a financial settlement by tomorrow ending his employment, or he will be suspended pending termination under his contract's terms.

IU spokesman Larry MacIntyre has declined to comment on the report.
