Purdue head basketball coach Matt Painter has been predicted to be this season’s Coach of the Year by CBS Sports.

Painter has led the Boilermakers to an amazing 91-40 mark over the past seven seasons. Last year, Purdue relied heavily on four freshmen and earned a double-bye in the B1G Tournament and a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament.


The Boilermakers return all five starters for Painter in 2021-22, and are ranked No. 7 in the year’s first Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Boilermakers open play for the 2020-21 season hosting the University of Indianapolis on Thursday, Nov. 4, with a 7:00 PM tipoff scheduled.
