Report: Former Drexel coach Bruiser Flint named assistant at Indiana

After a year away from the college coaching scene, Bruiser Flint is reportedly heading back to the bench.

This time, as an assistant at one of college basketball's most storied programs in college basketball.

According to CBSSports' Jon Rothstein, Flint will join Archie Miller's staff at Indiana. Miller replaced longtime Hoosiers coach Tom Crean, who was fired two weeks ago after nine seasons on the job.

Flint took the year off from coaching after he was fired from Drexel in 2016 after 15 seasons at the helm of the Dragons.

Flint put together a 245-217 record at Drexel but was never able to make the NCAA Tournament in those 15 seasons. A 6-25 campaign in 2015-16 was Flint's last stand at Drexel. He was replaced by Zach Spiker, who led the Dragons to a 9-23 record in his first season.

Prior to leading the Dragons, Flint, a St. Joe's grad spent six seasons as the head coach at UMass.
