Jamal Meeks will be joining Ball State men’s basketball as an assistant coach. Meeks played at Indiana from 1988 to 1992 for former coach Bob Knight.

Before Ball State, Meeks had been with Monmouth as an assistant coach since 2017. He played in 129 games for the Hoosiers during his time at Indiana. His last coaching gig before Monmouth was as an assistant on Bowling Green’s coaching staff in 2000.

Here’s what Meeks had to say about the opportunity from a press release per Will Backus of 247Sports:

“Along with my family, I am very grateful for the opportunity to lead the men’s basketball program at Ball State University,” Lewis said in a press release announcing his hiring. “Thank you to University President Geoff Mearns and Beth Goetz with whom I shared a vision for our program that will be aligned with their leadership and the values of Ball State. That united vision is paramount for success. We are very excited to return to the state of Indiana where basketball means so much to lead a program with tremendous history and great potential.”

The former Hoosiers guard will be returning to his home state to join new men’s basketball coach Michael Lewis.
