College Football Gambling: The revolving door of defensive coordinators continues for Indiana

08.04.2016     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson has done a really good job in Bloomington after gutting the program his first year (1-11) and finally getting the Hoosiers to the postseason in 2015. His offense has proven capable of scoring on practically everyone (31.3 ppg vs. Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State LY). It's the defense that has held them back. Last season, the Hoosiers lost five games by one score and in those contests allowed 43.2 ppg. IU heads into this season on its third defensive coordinator in six years. Tom Allen steps in after a one-year stint as USF's DC. He plans to employ a new 4-2-5 scheme.

“I think they’re here,’’ Allen said. “We’re going to recruit to it, but I didn’t come here and evaluate the team and think ‘Man, we’re really lacking this certain position.’ The one position to me that’s the most unique is the Husky position, the hybrid linebacker/safety. We feel like we have two or three guys there that are good candidates and a guy we recruited.

“The rest of it is more of a 4-3 nickel, which is how I would explain it. It’s going from a three down (defensive line) to a four down, but the way they played it last year there were some similarities for sure. But I feel like it’s our job to take the guys we’ve got and adjust the system to them. We’re going to make it work and make it fit and get them to play their tails off for 60 minutes.’’
