Indiana coach Wilson brushes aside talk he's on hot seat

If this year in particular will decide how much longer Kevin Wilson is the head football coach at Indiana, he does not sound concerned. 

“To me, they're all make or breaks,” the fifth-year coach told the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel. "We've been pretty realistic about getting better and having constant and consistent improvement, recruiting better, developing better. For the most part, we've done those things. We've gotten to the point where we're kind of competitive. We've had some good, some bad. We've had enough bad." 

The bad would include last year, when the Hoosiers dropped from 5-7 to 4-8 thanks in no small part to a season-ending injury to quarterback Nate Sudfeld, who is back at the helm of the Indiana offense this year. 

Wilson acknowledged his program cannot stay where it is forever, however. 


“There are a lot of things in place,” he said. “The last two years we had a chance to be really good, and I feel the best about this year.

“We've kind of been teetering. Whether it's been poor coaching or poor whatever, it hasn't happened. But some of the things we've accomplished show that we're not bad.”
