After spending one season as the offensive coordinator at Indiana, it appears Kalen DeBoer is returning to his old stomping grounds for a chance to be a head coach again.

On Tuesday, reported that DeBoer is expected to be named the next head coach at Fresno State, replacing recently retired coach Jeff Tedford. DeBoer spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Bulldogs before taking the same position at Indiana.

DeBoer also coached the quarterbacks while at Fresno State.

In 2018, DeBoer was a huge reason for Fresno State’s monumental success, finishing the year with 12-2 record, a Mountain West title and a win over Arizona State in the Las Vegas Bowl. The Bulldogs finished that year ranked No. 18 in the Associated Press poll.

This season, DeBoer has revamped Indiana’s entire offense into a heavy passing attack. With both Michael Penix Jr. and Peyton Ramsey under center throughout the year, the Hoosiers ranked No. 2 in the B1G in passing offense, averaging 308.7 yards per game. That average ranked 13th nationally.

Because of his unique offensive mind, DeBoer’s arrival helped push the Hoosiers into their best season in 25 years, finishing the season with an 8-4 record. Indiana won road games against Nebraska and Purdue and will have a chance to get a ninth win for the first time since the 1967 season.

DeBoer has been a head coach at the NAIA level, leading Sioux Falls to three national championships in five seasons (2005-09) at the helm. He finished his run with the Cougars with a 67-3 record, a 49-1 mark in Great Plains Athletic Conference play and four national title game appearances.

This would be DeBoer’s first shot as a head coach at the FBS level.

Tedford decided to step down as the head coach at Fresno State following a 4-8 season. He was the leader of the Bulldogs for three seasons, compiling a 26-14 record with two bowl appearances.
