IU adds to basketball staff

BLOOMINGTON – Indiana coach Tom Crean announced the hiring of Rob Judson as the program's director of basketball operations on the university's website Saturday.

Judson replaces Calbert Cheaney, who left to become an assistant coach at St. Louis University in August.

“Rob is someone who I have respected for a long time and he will bring a valuable presence to our program immediate,” Crean said in a release. “His diverse experiences will be a great asset for our staff to rely on. He is well thought of in our profession and we are excited he will be part of our staff.”

Judson played for Illinois from 1976-80 and was a member of the Illini coaching staff from 1996-2001. He left Illinois to become the head coach at Northern Illinois before going to Illinois State as an assistant from 2007-13.

“It is exciting to have the opportunity to be a part of the Indiana University men's basketball program,” Judson said. “I'm honored and humbled to be working with Coach Crean and his outstanding staff and am excited to begin right away.”
