Indiana University has had four straight coaches with a winning percentage under .400. With this being the case, they are being combined to represent the overall coaching futility that has existed for the past 14 seasons at IU.
In the previous 13 seasons, under Bill Mallory, the Hoosiers had six winning seasons and six bowl game appearances.
Overall Record: 54-108
Big Ten Record: 15-71
Number of Winning Seasons: One
Number of Seasons in Big Ten Bottom Five: 11
Best Season: 7-6 (2007)
Worst Season: 2-10 (2003)
Notes: These coaches' teams were fourth once, sixth twice, seventh once, eighth once, ninth three times, 10th four times and 11th twice in Big Ten play.
• Cam Cameron: 1997-2001: 18-37 (2-28 Big Ten)
Cameron, who was a quarterback at Indiana, returned to his alma mater to serve as the head coach in 1996. This was Cameron's first head coaching position.
• Gerry DiNardo: 2002-2004: 8-27 (3-21 Big Ten)
Prior to coming to Indiana, DiNardo was the head coach at LSU, where he was fired after back-to-back losing seasons.
• Terry Hoeppner: 2005-2006: 9-14 (4-12 Big Ten)
Hoeppner came to the Hoosiers after a 48–25 stint at Miami University, where he led the RedHawks to six consecutive winning seasons and two consecutive bowl game appearances. His career was cut short at Indiana due to his tragic death, as he succumbed to complications of brain cancer.
• Bill Lynch: 2007-2010: 19-30 (6-26 Big Ten)
Prior to moving to Indiana to serve as the offensive coordinator, Lynch was the head coach at Ball State and Depauw University. He was promoted to head coach when Coach Hoeppner's health did not allow him to perform the duties of the position.
Kevin R. Wilson was hired to take over the helm of the Hoosier program starting in 2011. Time will tell if he will be building on the legacy that is in place in Bloomington.
