Indiana football’s Tom Allen had openings on staff, so he turned to the NFL

Indiana football head coach Tom Allen sat before the media for the final time of the 2022 regular season.

He’d done so many times before, joking about the “Indinia” misspelling when the season was young, knuckles white against the podium as he questioned a targeting call on Micah McFadden and with a soft voice in the tunnels of the Big House after the Hoosiers started Donaven McCulley much earlier than anticipated due to piling injuries at the position.

In the postgame press conference against Minnesota the previous week, he’d yelled “Beat Purdue” as he walked out the door.
