Lynch to be named head coach for 2007

According to Indiana athletics media relations director J.D. Campbell, IU will issue a press release in the next few minutes announcing that Bill Lynch will be the Hoosier head coach in 2007.

There will also be a news conference to discuss the announcement at 2 p.m.

This announcement apparently will leave open the possibility of Terry Hoeppner returning as head coach after 2007 if his health allows.
