Last week there was a report that Oklahoma offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson had interviewed for the head coaching vacancy at Indiana. It was a report that Bob Stoops made sure to say was wrong. Though, before he was done denying the report, Stoops did say that he hoped Wilson would get the chance to interview for the position.
Well, according to a report in the Tulsa World, that's what is about to happen. A source at Indiana told the paper that Wilson was will interview for the position on Monday night.
If Wilson does end up getting the Indiana job, it would be nice hire for the school. Wilson has been at Oklahoma working for Stoops since 2002 and became the offensive coordinator in 2006 after Chuck Long left for his ill-fated job at San Diego State. Wilson had been the co-offensive coordinator before that.
Obviously, he's been pretty successful in the postion and he won the Broyles Award in 2008 as the top assistant coach in the country when he ran a very prolific Oklahoma offense that got Sam Bradford a Heisman Trophy in 2008. This season's offense was fourth in the nation in passing yards with 336.8 yards a game, and ranked 17th with 36.4 points per game. Of course, there's a slight difference between the talent at Oklahoma and the talent at Indiana.
