After four straight losing seasons, the Indiana Hoosiers finally became bowl bound in 2015.
The team earned a spot in the Pinstripe Bowl where they lost 44-41 in overtime to the Duke Blue Devils. With the program being patient with Kevin Wilson, the school decided to award the head coach with a new contract.
It was announced on Monday evening that Wilson was given a six-year extension to remain in his position. The deal is reportedly worth $15 million.

Despite being just 20-41 in five years, Wilson has improved the team year over year. Indiana bosts one of the most exciting young programs, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The team has finished in the top 15 in offense in two of the last three years.
With a new contract in hand, we’ll see what these new expectations do to Wilson’s performance on the sideline.
