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.
