MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Kelvin Sampson is getting another shot at coaching.
The former Indiana University head coach is one of four assistants hired today by the Milwaukee Bucks.
New coach Scott Skiles also hired former Chicago Bulls coach Jim Boylan and former NBA players Lionel Hollins and Joe Wolf.
Sampson brings experience, but also carries some baggage.
He resigned as Hoosiers coach on February 22nd and accepted a $750,000 buyout after an NCAA report charged him with five major NCAA rules violations.
Sampson took the Indiana job in March 2006 and two months later was penalized by the NCAA for making 577 impermissible phone calls between 2000 and 2004 while coaching Oklahoma. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
