IUPUI announces interim men’s basketball head coach

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – IUPUI’s associate head men’s basketball coach will take over the program on an interim basis.

The university announced Wednesday that Byron Rimm II will serve as interim coach. Rimm joined the program last October.

Jason Gardner resigned as head coach Tuesday after being arrested on a preliminary charge of operating while intoxicated in Fishers.

The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office will make a final charging decision.

Gardner, Indiana’s 1999 Mr. Basketball from North Central High School, was entering his sixth season as coach of the Jaguars.
