Indiana State names McKenna new hoops coach

Terre Haute, IN (Sports Network) – Indiana State Thursday named longtime
Creighton assistant Kevin McKenna its 24th men’s basketball coach.

“I am pleased to announce the hiring of Kevin McKenna as the new head mens
basketball coach at Indiana State University,” Indiana State athletics
director Ron Prettyman said. “Coach McKenna has been successful at every step
of his career as a college player, professional player, businessman, assistant
coach and head coach.”

McKenna served two stints at Creighton from 1994-01 and 2005-07. The Bluejays
finished 22-11 and garnered an NCAA Tournament appearance this past season.

McKenna is replacing Royce Waltman, who got dismissed after a decade with the
Sycamores. Indiana State finished 13-18 last season, and 5-13 in the MVC.
