Rivals.com’s Tom Dienhart is reporting that New Mexico defensive coordinator Doug Mallory and Nebraska linebackers coach Mike Ekeler will be named Indiana’s new co-defensive coordinators. Mallory is, of course, the son of former Indiana coach Bill Mallory.
Before his time at New Mexico, the younger Mallory also coached the secondary at LSU, Oklahoma State, Maryland and Indiana under his father. He was also the defensive coordinator at Western Kentucky.
Ekeler also coached at LSU and was a graduate assistant at Oklahoma early in new IU coach Kevin Wilson’s career there.
UPDATE, 5:49 p.m.: Both Mallory and Ekeler have refused to comment on their potential hires, though neither flatly denied the reports.
“I don’t think anything’s been released,” Mallory said. “Nothing’s been finalized yet, so I can’t comment on anything. I have not been hired and I’m still employed at the University of New Mexico.”
Ekeler did not immediately return a voicemail from the Herald-Times, but he issued a similar statement to the Nebraska media.
“I can’t comment until it all becomes official at Indiana,” Ekeler told the Lincoln Journal-Star.
