Indiana has hired Buffalo Bills defensive line coach William Inge as its linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator. The release from IU sports info.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson announced Wednesday that William Inge will join IU’s staff as co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. Assistant head coach Doug Mallory will serve defensive coordinator and continue to oversee the safeties.

Inge was the Buffalo Bills assistant defensive line coach in 2012 after two seasons as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at the University of Buffalo. He has 12 years of coaching experience, including stints as the linebackers coach at the University of Cincinnati (2008-09) and San Diego State University (2006-07).

A St. Louis native, Inge lettered four years at the University of Iowa (1993-96). He returned to his alma mater in 1998 and spent three years as the Hawkeyes recruiting coordinator and graduate assistant.

“We are pleased to add someone with William’s coaching pedigree to our staff,” Wilson said. “William has worked with some of the top coaches in our industry – Chan Gailey, Dave Wannstedt, Brian Kelly, Jeff Quinn and Chuck Long – at the collegiate level and in the NFL, where our players aspire to one day play. He is a Midwest guy with Big Ten ties and there is no doubt he is the right fit for our staff. William stood out in what was a deep and qualified pool of candidates. We are happy to welcome William, his wife, Rae Ann, and their children to Indiana.”

Inge is pleased with the chance to return to the Big Ten and work with Wilson’s Hoosiers.

Very solid, no extra bells and whistles, just what we’ve come to expect from Wilson and Co.

After reading the articles about defensive changes this winter, Coach Wilson is not addressing his team’s biggest problem, Coach Mallory’s schemes. In 2012, Rush defense ranked 116th of 120 in the nation, total defense 103/120 and scoring defense 101/120. Constantly playing nickle and dime packages may work at LSU or NM, but in the Big Ten; Wisconsin rushes for 562 yds. We scored enough to win more games and didn’t give bad field position through turnovers. Good athletes like #4, #42 and #34 fit in certain situations, but we need bigger, tough tacklers like Jeff Thomas to shore up the run game in conference play. Safety’s and corners are always making the tackles because of no run support from LB’s. We also lose two terrific players in Replogle and Black, so tough LB play is needed. Congrats to Coach Inge, we wish you the best and look forward to seeing your improved schemes…if allowed your own input. Based on 2011 and 2012 stats, we believe that if IU’s defensive coordinator’s last name wasn’t Mallory, he would be elsewhere too.

Hoosier Clarion, yes the excitement of being a Hoosier fan has caused me to say “we” too much lately…”we’re #1″, “we lost to OSU last night” and etc. Thank you for pointing out the annoying habit that I have heard others use for years.
