BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Former UMass head coach Walt Bell was hired Thursday as Indiana's new offensive coordinator.
The 37-year-old Bell was fired after nine games last season, finishing his tenure at UMass with a 2-23 record over three seasons.
Bell replaces Nick Sheridan, who was fired one day after the Hoosiers completed their season with a 2-10 mark and their first winless season in Big Ten play since 2011. They opened the season ranked No. 17 in The Associated Press poll.
