OSU names Wilson new offensive coordinator

COLUMBUS — Ohio State has officially named former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson as its new offensive coordinator.

At Ohio State, Wilson replaces Tim Beck, who departed to become the offensive coordinator at Texas, and Ed Warinner, who is headed to Minnesota to become the Gophers' offensive line coach, according to a Sports Illustrated report.

Indiana and Wilson parted ways on Dec. 1 amid allegations of player mistreatment, which several of Wilson's players disputed. Hoosiers director of athletics Fred Glass said at the time that no one incident led to the change, and that he and Wilson disagreed about how the program should be led.

In six seasons at Indiana, Wilson's teams went 26-47 but saw rare flickers of success within the Big Ten. Though Wilson never finished with a winning record, Indiana made two bowl games in his six seasons, which also included four consecutive victories against rival Purdue.

Wilson's Indiana teams were most notable for their offenses, which finished first or second in the Big Ten in passing yards three of the past four seasons. In 2015, the Hoosiers averaged 504 total yards and 36.5 points per game, and led the Big Ten in passing yards, points, and total offense.
