In­di­ana coach Wil­son abruptly re­signs after 6 sea­sons

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

BLOOMINGTON, IND. | 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 and cited “philo­soph­i­cal dif­fer­ences” with Wil­son. There were re­ports that Wil­son had pushed play­ers to re­turn from in­jury and Glass said the is­sue was looked into by a law firm hired by the univer­sity. Glass also said no po­ten­tial NCAA vi­o­la­tions were in­volved.

De­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Tom Allen was pro­moted to take Wil­son’s job, ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately.
