A familiar face returned to Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall during halftime of the IU women's basketball WNIT game against Villanova.

Tom Crean.

The now-former IU men's basketball coach made a public appearance just off of Branch McCracken Court just one day ahead of Archie Miller being publicly announced as his replacement.

Crean kept a relatively low profile, appearing in sweat pants and a gray pullover jacket. He cheered for the Hoosiers and shook hands with a few fans who walked by and noticed he was there.

He moved aside just before halftime. The women's team needed to run to their locker room through where Crean was standing.
