Crean Adds Two To Men's Basketball Staff
Sept. 10, 2009
Bloomington, Indiana - Indiana University men's basketball coach Tom Crean has announced the addition of Bloomington native Drew Adams, 24, and Louisville graduate Mason Revelette, 22, to entry-level positions within the program. Adams will serve as coordinator of basketball systems and Revelette will be a graduate manager.
"We are very excited to add these two young men to our program as they begin to pursue a career in coaching," said Crean. "Both have established themselves thus far on their own merit, have a great work ethic and come highly recommended from those who have been around them. They have a tremendous amount of experience for their ages in quality programs and should be great additions"
Both will likely be involved in several aspects of the program, including film breakdown and editing, camps, while also providing general day-to-day assistance to the coaching staff.
Adams comes to IU after serving the last two years as a student assistant at the University of Tennessee. During his time at UT, the Volunteers reached the NCAA Tournament twice and obtained the first number-one ranking in school history (2007-08). Prior to his time in Knoxville, Adams played one year at Iowa under Steve Alford, where current Hoosier assistant coach Tim Buckley also was on the staff. Adams spent two seasons (2004-2006) played at Florida Community College of Jacksonville where he was team captain as a sophomore before transferring to Iowa.
Adams grew up in Bloomington, Ind., and is a graduate of Bloomington High School South, where he spent three years playing for head coach J.R. Holmes. During his senior season at South, the Panthers won Conference Indiana and he was selected as team captain, was the team's leading scorer and was an all-conference selection. He earned his bachelor's in sports management from Tennessee in 2009.
Revelette is in his first year as a graduate manager with the Indiana men's basketball team. He comes to the Hoosiers after spending the previous four seasons as a student manager at the University of Louisville while earning a bachelor's degree in Sports Administration. Last year, he was a senior manager for a Cardinal program which advanced to the Elite Eight. A native of Brentwood, Tenn., he was starter on three state championship teams in high school at Brentwood Academy.
