Indiana HC Tom Allen named finalist for another Coach of the Year Award
Tom Allen is still adding honors to his resume following the conclusion of an impressive 2020 season.
Coming out of an 8-5 mark for the Hoosiers in 2019, Allen had Indiana aiming high despite a pandemic-impacted 2020 schedule. Facing those challenges and the season-ending injury of Michael Penix Jr., all Allen did was lead the Hoosiers to wins over Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, and Wisconsin.
The lone loss in league play for the Hoosiers came against Ohio State by just seven points. Fans will likely remember that Buckeye team went on to play for the National Championship against Alabama.
On Thursday, Indiana Football announced that Allen has been named a finalist for another prestigious award following 2020. This time, Allen was named a finalist for the Vince Lombardi Coach of the Year Award:

Following the 2020 season, Allen was nominated for the Paul ‘Bear’ Bryant Coach of the Year Award and won the AFCA National Coach of the Year Award. Now, he’ll get one more chance to add to his award collection for the 2020 season.
