Fife returns to IU men’s hoops as part of Woodson’s staff

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana University men’s basketball coach Mike Woodson has hired former Hoosiers star Dane Fife as associate head coach.

Fife played for Bob Knight and finished his career in 2002 as part of Indiana’s last Final Four team. He spent the last 10 seasons on Tom Izzo’s staff at Michigan State and the previous six seasons as head coach of IPFW’s budding program. He went 82-97 as the Mastodons made the switch from independent status to the Summit League.

Fife also spent two seasons as an administrative assistant on then Indiana coach Mike Davis’ staff.
