It’s time for Indiana to move on from AD Fred Glass

I don’t like the idea of calling for somebody’s job, but it’s time for Indiana to move on from athletic director Fred Glass. The Kevin Wilson Saga was the last straw. Glass has done some really good things during his eight years as the Hoosiers’ AD, but he’s made some really, really bad decisions of late. The bottom line is this: Glass has proven to be far too emotionally reactive to serve in a leadership role at Indiana University. It’s time to take the checkbook away from him, wish him well, and send him on his way. And I’d do

Details of Kevin Wilson’s Resignation at Indiana

Kevin Wilson resigned as Indiana’s head football coach on Thursday afternoon, according to Indiana athletic director Fred Glass. Glass cited “philosophical differences” as the reason for Wilson’s resignation at a press conference Thursday evening. Glass said Wilson will be paid one year’s base salary, $542K, as a buyout settlement, meaning he will forfeit the final four years of the 6-year contract extension he received in January. While Glass declined to go into much detail, the fact that Wilson will only be paid $542K suggests that this situation went well beyond “philosophical differences”. Indiana promoted defensive coordinator Tom Allen to be

BREAKING: Indiana fires football coach Kevin Wilson

Just when it finally looked like the Indiana football program was moving firmly in the right direction, we found out Thursday that couldn’t be any further from the truth. In a shocking development, Indiana fired head coach Kevin Wilson after he took the Hoosiers to back-to-back bowl games for the first time in 25 years. After the news leaked on Twitter late Thursday afternoon, allegations of mistreatment began to trickle out from former players. Some alleged that Wilson forced them to play through injuries, others that Wilson physically abused them. Multiple former players, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told

Kevin Wilson’s Hoosiers own Purdue, and that’s all that matters

I’ve been one of Kevin Wilson‘s biggest critics over the years. I strongly disagreed with the huge raise and contract extension Indiana athletic director Fred Glass gave Wilson after last season. I didn’t think Wilson deserved to have his salary doubled for going 6-7 in his fifth season as Indiana’s head coach. But as I sit here today, less than 48 hours after Indiana’s 26-24 win over Purdue, I’m fine with Wilson, his contract, and his salary. While I still don’t believe he deserves $2.55 million annually, I think it’s a reasonable price to pay for continuity in the football
