Howard promoted to head coach at IUPUI

IUPUI has promoted Todd Howard to head coach of the men’s

basketball coach.

Howard succeeds Ron Hunter, who took the Georgia State job last

month after 17 seasons in Indy.

Hunter advocated for the promotion of Howard, who spent 16

seasons as his assistant. In 2001, he was given the title of

associate head coach.

The Louisville native played college ball for his hometown

Cardinals and spent one season as a student assistant on Denny

Crum’s staff.

The school will introduce Howard and Austin Parkinson, the

women’s coach, at a news conference Monday. Parkinson, a Purdue

alum, replaced the fired Shann Hart in September.
