Indiana coach Kevin Wilson abruptly resigns after 6 seasons

BY foxsports • December 1, 2016

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Indiana coach Kevin Wilson abruptly resigned Thursday, less than a week after the Hoosiers became bowl-eligible for the second straight season.

Athletic director Fred Glass made the announcement during a hastily arranged news conference. He said defensive coordinator Tom Allen would be the permanent replacement, effective immediately.

Glass said the decision was made because of ''philosophical differences.''

Indiana (6-6, 4-5 Big Ten) is waiting to find out which bowl game it will play in.

Wilson went 26-47 in six seasons in his first college head coaching job.
