Kevin Wilson will step down as the head coach at Indiana, sources told FootballScoop Thursday.
Sources tell FootballScoop the decision is related to things other than wins and losses which will be elaborated on later today.
Wilson signed a 6-year extension in January that nearly doubled his pay to $2.55 million annually. While the new agreement significantly boosted Wilson’s salary.
Indiana AD Fred Glass said at the time that the extension “sends the right signals that we’re serious about football and serious about Kevin.”
Kevin Wilson buyout (if this is without cause) is ~$2,744,677, per USA Today.

A former Miami (Ohio), Northwestern and Oklahoma offensive coordinator, Indiana was Wilson’s first head coaching job. Wilson took the Hooisers to a bowl game in 2015 — the program’s second such appearance since 1992 — and, with a 6-6 mark this season, has IU in line for its first back-to-back postseason appearances since 1990-91.
This story will be updated as more details become available.
