New assistant Mann cited for OWI

Cornell Mann was named assistant coach of the ISU men’s basketball team Monday. One day later, he was arrested in Ohio and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence.

Mann was cited for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in Dayton, Ohio, late Tuesday night, just one day after the ISU athletic department announced his hiring. 

Mann had been an assistant coach at the University of Dayton for the past three seasons and was at Western Michigan before that. This is his first major conference job.

Coach Fred Hoiberg currently has no comment on the matter as the incident is still under investigation.

Mike Green, spokesman for the ISU athletic department, said the current plan was for Mann to undergo public service and a substance abuse program.

Freshman center Jordan Railey was charged with an OWI in February after a single vehicle accident outside of Ogden in January. He was suspended for two games following the accident but did not receive any additional punishment following the charges.
