BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- New Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean
has signed a 10-year deal worth $23.6 million. School officials said Tuesday that the deal includes a base salary of $600,000 a year, with additional payments for promotional work. He will receive $1.4 million this season from outside income, a total that will increase slightly each year of the contract.
Crean had agreed to an 8-year contract when he was hired in
April to replace the ousted Kelvin Sampson, but the university
agreed last month to add two more years to the deal. The contract also includes a clause that allows the university to fire Crean if he or his staff violate NCAA rules.
