Abrupt change at top for Hoosiers

Athletic director Fred Glass announced on Thursday afternoon that Kevin Wilson resigned because of "philosophical differences." The Hoosiers rallied to edge Purdue 26-24 last Saturday to improve to 6-6.

Indiana athletic director Fred Glass and new head coach Tom Allen met with the media for about an hour, but many questions remain about the specifics of why Kevin Wilson was fired. Glass, who was a successful lawyer before becoming AD, continually referred to "philosophical differences" without going into many details.

Indiana athletics director Fred Glass said he had concerns about football coach Kevin Wilson's leadership style before giving him a new six-year contract in January. But Glass said the issues re-emerged in early November and he hired an outside law firm to conduct an internal investigation. Glass said there was no "smoking gun" in reaching the decision to ask Wilson to resign on Thursday. Glass said Wilson will be paid $542,000, equal to one year's base salary. He was owed more than $12 million for the final five years of his contract.

Indiana athletics director Fred Glass hired current defensive coordinator Tom Allen as head coach on Thursday, replacing Kevin Wilson, who resigned earlier in the day. Glass called Allen a "leader of men" with high standard, but said he isn't "demeaning." Glass said Allen cares about his players and they care back.

Though he gave Kevin Wilson a six-year contract extension in January, Indiana athletic director Fred Glass said he had some concerns over Wilson's leadership style. He said he thought those concerns had been addressed but recently found that "differences in leadership approach were maybe back."

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

I spoke with Tom Allen before the Michigan game about how much he loved being back in Indiana and what it meant to his family. These obviously aren't ideal circumstances to take over, but he always seemed like a strong candidate to succeed Kevin Wilson. Some also thought he would have returned to Ole Miss as defensive coordinator this offseason.

Indiana University officials have fired football coach Kevin Wilson and will announce his dismissal at a Thursday news conference, according to the Indianapolis Star and other media outlets. A former Hoosiers player told ESPN on Thursday that he and at least five current IU players were interviewed about Wilson's treatment of players in meetings with athletics department officials and university lawyers during the past two weeks. The university sent out a news alert on Thursday saying there would be a major news announcement regarding its football program at a 6 p.m. news conference.
