Kevin Wilson announced two staff changes today for the 2014 season.  Former Co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks and wide receivers coach Kevin Johns has been promoted to be the full time offensive coordinator.  This gives the Hoosiers some continuity after Seth Littrell left Bloomington to become the offensive coordinator at North Carolina.  John's will be entering his fourth season with the Hoosiers and has helped turn the Indiana offense into one of the best in the Big Ten.

Indiana also announced the hiring of Larry McDaniel as their new defensive line coach.  McDaniel replaces the fired Jon Fabris and has deep Hoosier roots as he started for four years for Indiana from 1989-92.  In 2013 McDaniel coached the Bowling Green defensive line, which was one of the strongest in the MAC Conference.  In addition to his time with the Falcons, McDaniel spent eight seasons at Kent State (2003-10) and four at Ball State (1999-03), so he has mid-western recruiting ties.
