MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Following his messy divorce with Indiana
University, Kelvin Sampson was introduced today as an assistant
coach with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Sampson resigned as IU's basketball coach February 22nd and
accepted a $750,000 buyout after an NCAA report charged him with
five major rules violations. He agreed to become a Bucks assistant to Scott Skiles earlier this month.

Sampson is looking to restore his reputation and hopes by taking
the Bucks' job he's taking a step in that direction. He's not talking about his departure from Indiana until after an NCAA hearing in mid-June. Sampson says, "more will come out and I'll be more than happy to talk after that."
