Indiana to wear helmet stickers to honor late head coach Bill Mallory
Earlier this year, the Indiana football community lost a coaching legend when Bill Mallory pass away. But the Hoosiers have a plan to honor the winningest coach in program history in the 2018 season.
At B1G Media Days on Tuesday, IU head coach Tom Allen said that the Hoosiers will sport helmet stickers this fall to remember and honor Mallory.
“We want to honor him this season by wearing a decal on our helmets each week,” Allen said. He also said the team wanted to honor the late coach by “breaking through.”
Mallory passed away in May.
Mallory coached 13 seasons at Indiana, racking up 69 wins and taking the Hoosiers to six bowl games. He also had head coaching stints at Miami (OH), Colorado, and Northern Illinois before his finalizing his career at IU.
The Hoosiers open the season against Florida International on Sept. 1.
