Former Indiana coach Bill Lynch, who had been working as an assistant athletic director at his alma mater Butler, took the head coaching job at Division III DePauw on Thursday.

Lynch led DePauw to an 8-2 record in 2004 before joining Terry Hoeppner’s staff at Indiana. Lynch took over the head job at Indiana in 2007 after Hoeppner’s passing. The Hoosiers went 7-6 and lost in the Insight Bowl that year, but the Hoosiers had losing records each of the next three years and he was fired.

WE WISH HIM THE BEST——-his many accomplishments were not fully appreciated at the time, but history will smile on the legacy of BL—–he is the only coach in IU’s history that was involved in FOUR Oaken Bucket victories (’93,’94 as an assistant and ’07,’10 as the head coach)——(and of course one of his many other important accomplishments was stabilizing the program during a very tragic period)——another bit of trivia and state of Indiana football lore: BL is also the only coach ever to win BOTH of the oldest college football trophies in the great state of Indiana——the Old Oaken Bucket and the Monon Bell in 1994 (a trophy almost as old, marking the rivalry between Depauw and Wabash)——KEEP THE LEGACY GOING COACH !!!

This is a good fit for Billl Lynch. I admit, I wasn’t a big fan of his at IU. I thought he was just too soft, and didn’t get on his players hard enough to be all they could be. With that said, maybe IU didn’t give him the money available to attract good coaches, like Wilson is enjoying. Regardless he is a good man, and cares about the kids more then winning.

Barbed Bill, what the heck are you smokin’? Pass some over here! Bo McMillin beat Purdoodoo (or do you say Purpoopoo) in ’34, ’35, ’40, 41, ’42, ’44, ’45 (beat defending nat’l. champs Notre Dame that year, too, damn if I only had a freakin’ time machine), ’46, and 1947. Never mind any of his asst. coaches. Please come up with better trivia questions than that!
