Indiana updates offensive coaching staff duties
With some new pieces in place, Indiana football has updated its offensive coaching staff duties heading into spring practice.
The biggest addition of the offseason was Kalen DeBoer, who will be the offensive coordinator for the Hoosiers entering the 2019 season. He’ll also serve as an associate head coach and quarterbacks coach on staff.
Nick Sheridan will fill the other void left by former offensive coordinator Mike DeBord, taking over as the tight ends coach.

Mike Hart will continue to coach running backs and will be assistant head coach. Grant Heard will be the passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach while Darren Hiller will be the run game coordinator and coach the offensive line.
Indiana is trying to field a more productive offensive unit in 2019, as the Hoosiers struggled on that side of the football last year. Despite having some dynamic playmakers in the rushing and passing game, IU ranked 10th in the B1G in scoring (26.0 ppg) ninth in rush offense (157.3 ypg) and seventh in total offense (415.2).
The Hoosiers have finished 5-7 each of the last two years.
