Tom Allen said that he wanted to keep the same offense, and Indiana is promoting from within for its next play caller.
Former tight ends and quarterbacks coach Nick Sheridan will take over the reigns from Kalen DeBoer according to multiple reports.
John Brice was the first to report the news, and Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports also reported via Twitter. Feldman reported that receivers coach Grant Heard was also being promoted to Co-offensive coordinator.
The 31 year old Sheridan has spent the last three seasons at Indiana, and 2019 was his first as the tight ends coach. He oversaw the quarterbacks in 2017 and 2018.
Sheridan broke into the collegiate coaching ranks as an offensive graduate assistant at Western Kentucky University and was elevated to quarterbacks coach and passing coordinator in 2012. He followed head coach Willie Taggart to the University of South Florida in the same capacity for the 2013 season.
He worked as an offensive graduate assistant at the University of Tennessee from 2014-16 and helped coach quarterback Joshua Dobbs there.
Sheridan walked on as a quarterback at the University of Michigan in 2006 and received a scholarship prior to his junior year. He appeared in 12 career games, made four starts in 2008, and closed out his career with 701 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Sheridan’s father, Bill, is the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Boston College.
