By Jon Rothstein | CBS Sports

Indiana's Tom Crean will hire former Marist head coach Chuck Martin as an assistant, sources told

Martin will replace Kenny Johnson, who left after the season to take a similar position at Louisville.

Martin served as head coach at Marist from 2008-2013, and was fired after going 41-117 in five years. He was also a key assistant under John Calipari at Memphis from 2006-2008. A New York native, Martin spent two years with the Tigers under Calipari, and was a part of a staff that won 38 games and lost in 2008 national title game to Kansas.

Martin spent last season as a scout with the NBA Oklahoma City Thunder.

Indiana finished 17-15 last season and was passed over for the NIT.
