Drew Adams has been named the coordinator of basketball systems for the Indiana men’s basketball team. Adams, a Bloomington native, was a student assistant the last two years at the University of Tennessee. He replaces Brian Barone, who was named an assistant coach at Wisconsin-Green Bay earlier this week.
“He has worked very hard to prepare himself for a future in coaching, and we are excited to have him be a part of that at Indiana,” IU coach Tom Crean said in a statement. “I know he has a very bright future and I’m glad it’s going to be with us.”
In addition to several administrative responsibilities including camps, Adams will be in charge of overseeing all video operations as it pertains to practice and game coverage, opponent film exchange, scouting and other visual training and coaching tools the staff may have.
“It means a lot to me that coach Crean believes in my work and thinks highly enough of me to offer me this position and opportunity,” Adams said in a statement. “This is something I have been working toward for a long time and I couldn’t be more excited. The technology that college basketball teams use is so important to their day-to-day success and I realize the tremendous responsibility that comes with this.”
