Defensive line coach Kevin Peoples hired by Missouri

Indiana is searching for a new defensive line coach.

The University of Missouri announced on Friday Kevin Peoples is headed to that school to take on the same role.  Missouri football head coach Eliah Drinkwitz once played under Peoples.

Under Peoples, a 29-year coaching veteran, IU led the Big Ten in sacks for the first time in program history in 2020, his first season with the program. Jerome Johnson, who signed a free-agent contract with the Miami Dolphins, became the first Hoosiers defensive tackle to earn first-team all-conference honors since Hurvin McCormack in 1993.

Peoples arrived in Bloomington after four seasons as Tulane University’s defensive line coach.  IU signed two defensive linemen in the class of 2022 and three more via the transfer portal.
