Indiana tabs Wilson as head coach
Dec. 7, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- The Indiana Hoosiers have given new football coach Kevin Wilson a seven-year contract worth $1.2 million per year.
The school announced contract terms about 15 minutes before Wilson's introductory news conference Tuesday.
Wilson has been the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma since 2006 and worked under coach Bob Stoops since 2002. He also worked previously on the staff at Miami (Ohio) with Terry Hoeppner, the late Hoosiers coach who died from brain cancer in June 2007.
Wilson's hiring comes nine days after athletic director Fred Glass fired Bill Lynch, who had three straight losing seasons after taking Indiana to a bowl game in 2007.
