Porter wants to build his own legacy, thinks Todd Yeagley should be next IU coach

Akron coach Caleb Porter is preparing for his eighth College Cup. His Zips, the undefeated No. 1 team in the country, are the only non-ACC team to qualify for men’s soccer’s Final Four, which takes place this weekend in Cary, N.C. Akron plays North Carolina, which eliminated Indiana in the third round of the tournament, Friday.

Besides being an Indiana alum and former assistant — two of his College Cup trips came as a player, one as an undergraduate assistant and four as a full-time assistant under both Jerry Yeagley and Mike Freitag — Porter is of particular interest to Indiana fans now because Freitag must be replaced.

As Porter told the Akron Beacon-Journal last week, though, he has no particular  interest in coming back to his alma mater.

“When I left Indiana, I said that my goal was to take what I had learned there and use it to build my own legacy somewhere else,” he said Monday afternoon. “That’s what I’m doing, and what I intend to continue to do.”

Indiana’s athletic department has reached out to the Akron athletic department and was told that Porter would not be available for a conversation until after the College Cup. While Porter said he was “humbled” to be a candidate, he also said he would tell Indiana the same thing he told me.

Porter does have a thought on who should be the next coach: his former teammate and roommate and fellow assistant, current Wisconsin coach Todd Yeagley.

“I’ve always felt the ideal successor is Todd Yeagley,” he said. “He grew up around the program. It’s in his blood. No one will work harder to get it back to winning championships.”

IU football gets 22nd commitment

Indiana has added Chase Hoobler, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound middle linebacker from Orrville (Ohio) High School, the home of Bobby Knight. Hoobler initially committed to Akron but de-committed, according to a newspaper report, after Akron’s recruiting coordinator resigned. The Zips are now looking to replace coach J.D. Brookhart, who was fired after the season. Hoobler was also considering Central Michigan among other schools.

More details to come.

IU football will have new uniforms

This picture was apparently posted on the Indiana Rivals (Peegs) message board earlier today creating the obvious presumption that those are the new Indiana football uniforms for next season. That may or may not be the case. An Indiana spokesman confirmed Monday that the Hoosiers will have new uniforms next season, but that IU is still looking at designs and has not decided on one yet. We hope to have more on this later.

Scoop Poll:

Where will IU be ranked to start next season?
