Dienhart: Hoosiers shake up football staff

Can’t say it was a shock to see the release from Indiana that announced defensive coordinator Doug Mallory and defensive line coach Jon Fabris won’t be back. Wilson had to do something. The Hoosiers defense was an abomination in 2013 and a big reason why the school failed to reach a bowl for the sixth season in a row, as Indiana finished 5-7 overall and 3-5 in the Big Ten. “Doug and Jon are solid coaches and good men,” Wilson said in a statement. “We appreciate everything they have done for IU Football and wish them both the very best

Dienhart: What does new OC mean for Michigan?

It looks like Michigan already has hired a new offensive coordinator, as reports indicate Brady Hoke has tabbed Alabama’s Doug Nussmeier. That didn’t take long. Actually, it obviously likely has been in the works for a bit. The chair in deposed coordinator Al Borges’ office is still warm. Heck, pictures of his kids may still be on his desk. As I said in my analysis of Borges’ firing yesterday, Michigan’s next offensive coordinator wasn’t going to be a radical hire. Hoke wasn’t going to bring in a guy who had one of those whacky go-go offenses that was going to

Dienhart: Meet Al Borges, Michigan's 'fall guy'

Meet Al Borges, Michigan’s fall guy for the ultra-disappointing 2013 season. Brady Hoke has a head to show the restless Wolverines fan base. Someone had to pay for the 7-6 season. And, it was Borges. See! Hoke is doing something! He isn’t sitting idling by in his short-sleeve shirt doing nothing as Schembechler Hall burns. He’s a man of action! “Decisions like these are never easy,” said Hoke in a statement. “I have a great amount of respect for Al as a football coach and, more importantly, as a person.  I appreciate everything he has done for Michigan Football for

[ MORE: AP: Interim coach Larry Johnson eyes full-time job ] Here is Joyner’s release: “The search for the new leader of the Penn State football program is progressing very well. We are on schedule and I anticipate having the new head coach in place in a matter of days. The search is robust as we anticipated it would be and we have an excellent pool of candidates. I have heard from many coaches, or

Dienhart: What kind of coach fits at Penn State?

Penn State made it official today: Bill O’Brien is leaving after two seasons. Now, the search is on for his replacement, which was a point of today’s press conference by Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner. This is and always will be one of the best jobs in America, so there will be no shortage of quality candidates. Here are my top choices. But in reading this, it’s important to remember that O’Brien seemingly came out of nowhere when he was hired. Along those lines, keep Ball State’s Pete Lembo on your radar. Greg Roman, Stanford offensive coordinator. He interviewed

AP: Six possible candidates to replace Bill O'Brien

He has gone 23-15 at Vanderbilt, taking the perennial SEC doormat to three straight bowl games. He signed a long-term extension after last season. -Al Golden, Miami.
