A Big 12 defensive line coach is being poached away by the B1G. Texas Tech’s Paul Randolph is reportedly being hired by Indiana, according to reporter Bruce Feldman.

Randolph has been Texas Tech’s defensive line coach since 2019. The 55-year-old was previously Memphis’ defensive line coach from 2016-18. Randolph is a Georgia native who played nine seasons in the CFL as a linebacker.

Randolph will replace former Indiana defensive line coach Kevin Peoples, who was hired in March 2020. Peoples accepted an assistant position at Missouri.

Indiana finished the 2021 season with a 2-10 record and lost every game in B1G play. It was a regression after the Hoosiers posted back-to-back winning seasons in 2019 and 2020. Indiana went 8-5 in 2019 and then 6-2 in the pandemic shortened 2020 campaign.

Indiana will kick off next season with a home game vs. B1G rival Illinois on Sept. 3.
