Did anyone else think it was odd that the Hoosier Nation sure ate up the fact that Coach Cal told them what a good hire they made today?

A native of the Bronx, Martin was the head coach at Marist from 2008 to 2013 and was also an assistant coach at Manhattan, Drexel, Massachusetts, St. John’s and Memphis, where he worked under John Calipari from 2006 to 2008.

At one point, Martin cut straight to the point. He asked John Calipari what he’d do.

“Look, if you want to get back into the college game, Indiana is a special place,” Calipari told him. “This is a no-brainer for you.”

A blessing from Kentucky’s Calipari, for whom Martin worked as an assistant under at Memphis for two seasons, wasn’t what ultimately sold him on joining Tom Crean’s staff at Indiana. But it certainly played no small role.

and

“When he called me and asked me if I wanted to be a part of it, for me, it was a no-brainer,” said Martin, echoing Calipari’s thoughts. “I wanted to be a part of something special. And clearly Indiana and coach Crean are something special.

I hope Coach Clappy will sleep better tonight since he knows Cal approves of his hire.  Boy, I sure didn’t remember anyone discussing how Crean felt the Slice hire.
