“I am excited to add Chad to our staff,” head coach Tom Allen said. “I have known Chad for a long time, and he is man of high character who brings a wealth of experience to our defense. He is a great husband, father, and leader of men. We welcome Chad, his wife, Megan, and their three children, Cooper, Maddox, and Charlotte, to Bloomington.”
“Indiana University is a special place and Tom Allen is one of the best men in this profession,” Wilt said. “Being from this state, when Coach Allen called it was an opportunity I simply couldn’t pass up. My family and I are eager to get settled in Bloomington. Our defense will be aggressive and fly around like its hair is on fire. These young men will play with passion for each other and for IU.”
