INDIANA UNIVERSITY

Fred Glass is beginning his eighth season as the Indiana University athletic director, and he heads an IU program that is experiencing significant success in many areas. Six IU Olympians just captured a total of eight medals in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The IU men’s soccer team is ranked in the top 15 in the nation, and the same is expected for an IU men’s basketball program that is coming off its second outright Big Ten title in four years. Indiana football is looking to play in a bowl game in back-to-back seasons for the first time in more than 20 years. Veteran IU beat writer Terry Hutchens, in his 19th season covering IU, sat down with the Indiana athletic director Friday for an exclusive in-depth interview to talk all things IU athletics. Part 1 of the Q&A focused on his thoughts on football and facilities. Today’s second installment looks at things like the IU-Kentucky basketball rivalry, thoughts on former coach Bob Knight and current IU basketball coach Tom Crean and how long the athletic director could see himself in his current position. –Read More
