Head coach Archie Miller appears to have the rest of his IU staff set.

According to a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman, Miller's staff at Indiana will include former UMass and Drexel head coach Bruiser Flint, former Dayton assistant coach Tom Ostrom and former UCLA assistant Ed Schilling. Former Dayton Director of Basketball Operations Bill Comar will fill the same role at Indiana.

Flint, whose hiring was previously reported, provides an East Coast connection for the staff, compiling a record of 331-289 with two NCAA tournament appearances and one conference regular season title in 20 seasons as a head coach - five at UMass and 15 Drexel.

Ostrom, an assistant coach since 2003, has most notably worked under former Florida head coach Billy Donovan. Prior to arriving at Dayton in 2011, also spent seven seasons as an assistant under John Pelphrey, the first three at South Alabama and the next four at Arkansas.

Schilling brings strong Indiana ties to the staff, having served as a head coach at Indianapolis Park Tudor from 2009 to 2012. He guided the Panthers to an 87-18 record in those four years, securing two IHSAA Class 2A state titles and a runner-up finish before joining Steve Alford's staff at UCLA following the 2012-13 Indiana high school basketball season.

Comar spent the previous six years at Dayton's director of basketball operations. Prior to joining Dayton, was an assistant coach at Loyola University and also served director of operations for seven years at Xavier under Thad Matta and Sean Miller, Archie’s older brother.
