Sources: Indiana's firing of Kevin Wilson not due to performance
Indiana's dismissal of Kevin Wilson isn't related to on-field performance.
The news that Indiana will part ways with head coach Kevin Wilson comes at a surprising time given the relative resurgence of the Hoosier program. However, 247Sports has learned from multiple sources that the dismissal is not related to Indiana's on-field performance.
Indiana has a team meeting scheduled for 5:30 p.m., per 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong, and a press conference to follow.
Wilson led Indiana to back-to-back 6-6 regular seasons in the past two years and the program is poised to accept its first back-to-back bowl berths since the 1991 season. The Hoosiers in January extended Wilson's contract through 2021.
In six years in Bloomington, the 55-year-old Wilson has a 26-47 record. Before being hired by Indiana, Wilson was a successful offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.
