Indiana State has promoted assistant Greg Lansing to be its new men's basketball coach.

The announcement on Tuesday came a day after Kevin McKenna resigned to become an assistant to Dana Altman at Oregon.

Lansing was on McKenna's staff at Indiana State each of the past three seasons. He also was an assistant under former Sycamores coach Royce Waltman during a previous stint in Terre Haute.

In between coaching Indiana State, Lansing spent seven seasons as an Iowa assistant, but this is his first head coaching job at the college level.


Lansing takes over a team that went 17-15 last season and made its first postseason tournament appearance since 2001. The Sycamores played in the College Basketball Invitational.
