BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson has been hired as the head football coach at Indiana University, the school announced Tuesday.
Wilson agreed to a deal that is to pay him $1.2 million a year for seven years.
"I am excited by the opportunity to be the head football coach at Indiana University," said Wilson, who had been with Oklahoma since 2002. "I am confident we can win here and win in the right way."
Indiana Athletic Director Fred Glass said he was "thrilled" to have Wilson on board.
"He is committed to compliance, academics, character and winning," Glass said. "He has helped lead successful programs at Miami (Ohio), Northwestern and Oklahoma. I believe his leadership, vision, confidence, teaching, commitment, discipline and toughness herald a terrific new era for Indiana football."
Wilson replaces Bill Lynch, who was fired Nov. 28.
The Hoosiers finished the season 5-7 overall and 1-7 in the Big Ten.
