(WSCR) We’ll start with this: Indiana Hoosiers basketball coach Tom Crean is making just shy of $2 million this season.

So, Tom, if you drop your gum on the ground, just buy a new pack.

After Indiana’s win over Sam Houston State, Crean quickly defended his actions on Twitter.

“The gum I dropped tonight was a fresh piece of Dentyne Ice,” Crean wrote. “No 5 second rule was in effect. Now, even if it was used, it wouldn’t matter. Branch McCracken Court at ASSEMBLY HALL is the cleanest and greatest court around.”
