Tom Allen to Step Down as Indiana Hoosiers Head Coach, Per AP Sources

According to two sources familiar with the matter, the Indiana Hoosiers are not renewing head coach Tom Allen’s contract for an eighth season, The Associated Press reported on Sunday, on condition of anonymity.

Allen led the Hoosiers to back-to-back bowl games in 2020 and achieved their highest ranking since 1967 at No. 12 in the final AP Top 25 poll. He was also named Big Ten and AFCA national coach of the year after the 2020 season.

However, the team’s performance took a downturn in recent years, with a 2-10 record in 2021, followed by 4-8 and 3-9 records in the subsequent seasons. Additionally, Allen’s teams went 3-24 against Big Ten opponents.

Allen had signed a seven-year contract extension in 2019, which included provisions for additional postseason appearances. His buyout for this year is nearly $21 million.

During his tenure, Allen amassed a 33-49 record as head coach, including 0-3 in bowl games after taking over as the defensive coordinator in 2016.

Allen, who hails from New Castle, Indiana, started his coaching career at the high school level in Florida and Indiana. He made several college stops before returning to his home state.
