Hoosier Sounds: IU football head coach Tom Allen talks his improbable path to Bloomington

When he was hired as a defensive coordinator at tiny Temple Heights High School in Florida at age 23, becoming a head coach in the Big Ten was the furthest thing from Tom Allen’s mind.

Allen spoke with Kyle Decker and Calvin Blackmon on the Underdog Podcast as the trio retraced the now fifth year Indiana head coach’s path to Bloomington.
