Wide receivers coach Adam Henry headed back to NFL

It will be a one-and-done tenure for wide receivers coach Adam Henry in Bloomington.

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reported on Wednesday afternoon Henry is headed back to the NFL to coach the wide receivers for the Buffalo Bills.

Tom Allen announced the hiring of Henry, who also held the title of co-offensive coordinator, less than a year ago on March 18, 2022.

In his lone season at IU, Henry helped Cam Camper emerge as a weapon at the Power Five level after transferring in from junior college.  Camper had 46 catches for 569 yards in seven games before suffering a season ending knee injury.

Indiana signed multiple wide receivers during the offseason, including E.J. Williams (Clemson) and Dequece Carter (Fordham) from the transfer portal, and high school prospects Derrick Bohler and Orlando Greenlow.

Henry came to IU from the Dallas Cowboys and he brought some clout to the role in Bloomington.  He coached NFL Pro Bowlers Odell Beckham Jr., Anquan Boldin, Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Jarvis Landry, and Zach Miller.  Henry also coached Beckham and Landry at LSU.

This marks the third position coach change since the end of the 2022 season.  Head coach Tom Allen has also replaced position coaches for the offensive line and safeties.

A year ago Allen didn’t have much time to replace Grant Heard, and Henry was added after spring practice was already underway.  That scenario might play out again this year.  Indiana opens spring practice on March 4.
