Tom Crean sends awkward tweet, says it was for a recruit
A screenshot of the tweet (since deleted) is below, along with two follow-up tweets he sent soon after to clarify:
If you place that tweet in the context of Crean responding to a recruit interested in the Indiana basketball program, then it makes plenty of sense. But if you view it in the context of cheating on one’s spouse, then it looks terrible.
Crean has always come across to me as a high character coach. I believe him when he says that note was intended for a recruit, and based on the emotional ties he has to his players, he seems like the type who would tell a recruit he’s been thinking about them a lot.
