Local Man To Coach Indiana

Doug Jocz, a well-known local entrepreneur, tippy-toed golfer and American Airlines pilot, has mysteriously been tabbed to lead the Indiana Hoosiers football team…And all this time we thought he was a hockey guy.

What? It’s not Jocz…It’s just a guy that looks like Jocz. Oh…this guy’s name is Kevin Wilson.

OK, former UNC player and current Oklahoma offensive coordinator, Kevin Wilson will be the new head coach at Indiana, according to ESPN and various news outlets in Oklahoma and Indiana.

The 49-year-old Maiden, N.C. native (and Doug Jocz look-a-like) was a lineman and linebacker during the early ‘80s under Dick Crum. He began as a walk-on after a standout prep career at Fred T. Foard High.

Previously, Wilson worked on the staffs at Miami of Ohio, Northwestern, N.C. A&T and Winston-Salem State.

The Hoosiers fired former coach Bill Lynch after his team finished 5-7 overall and 1-7 in the Big Ten. Lynch had 19-30 overall, 6-26 Big Ten records in four seasons.

Wilson joined the Oklahoma staff in 2002 as the offensive line coach. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2006.
