Update: Bill Lynch has indeed been fired, as Fred Glass made the announcement on Sunday evening.
It sounds like the Bill Lynch era at Indiana is coming to an end. It seems that not even winning the Old Oaken Bucket back from Purdue could save Lynch's job, as the Hoosiers finished their season at 5-7 on Saturday.
More importantly, the Hoosiers finished 1-7 in Big Ten play.
According to Tom Dienhart, Indiana AD Fred Glass has called for a press conference at 5pm EST to discuss the future of the college football program.
Schools generally don't call press conferences to announce that they aren't going to be firing anybody. Still, there is no official word yet, but there was this tweet from Indiana cornerback Andre Kates(I'll just give it one large SIC right here).
"Whoaaaaaa my coaches @ IU just got fired?????"
If Lynch is fired, he'll be the second coach to lose his job in the Big Ten this season, and depending on how things shake out at Michigan in coming weeks, he may not be the last.
