“I am thrilled that Kevin Wilson will lead our football program,” Athletic director Fred Glass said. “He is committed to compliance, academics, character and winning. He has helped lead successful programs at Miami (Ohio), Northwestern and Oklahoma. I believe his leadership, vision, confidence, teaching, commitment, discipline and toughness herald a terrific new era for Indiana football.”

“I’m extremely pleased that Kevin Wilson, who has been one of the nation’s top assistant coaches for several years, has agreed to come to IU to lead our football program,” Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie said. “He has proven to be a great innovator, motivator and teacher, while coaching some of the most prolific offenses in NCAA history and numerous All-American athletes. He clearly has the talent and experience we were hoping to obtain as we embark on what we fully anticipate to be an exciting new era of IU football. I look forward to welcoming him to IU.”

Let’s hope Wilson guides this team to success.

“I am excited by the opportunity to be the head football coach at Indiana University,” Wilson said. “I am confident we can win here and win in the right way.”

Wilson wants to build something special here. Let’s hope he will.
