TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Indiana native Chad Killinger is returning home. The coaching veteran, formerly assistant coach at Nicholls State University, has been named the ninth women’s basketball coach in Indiana State history.
Killinger will be introduced at a press conference at 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday, April 27, in the Hulman Center. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, it will be open to invited guests and media only but will be live streamed on Indiana State Athletics social media channels.
Killinger, a former national coach of the year for two-year colleges, had a 9-2 record as interim head coach at East Carolina University in 2018. He served as recruiting coordinator at Nicholls State and helped the Colonels rank in the top-50 nationally in six statistical categories.
Throughout his 25-year coaching career, Killinger has held nearly every position possible in a collegiate basketball program, from student-assistant coach, to assistant coach, to junior college head coach and now Division I head coach.
