IU's loss is UM's gain. That whole "co-coordinator' situation is weird.

walt bell might possibly have the worst agent in college football.

you got fired from a job, make them pay you, get such a low ball amount from indiana that you screw the other guy.

they are off the hook for one year, but probably not two since that staff will be fired at the end of 2022. Did his BFF Paschell get a job too?

UMass is off the hook!!!! Got give Bamford or someone credit because it was written that he couldn't screw the school totally.

"UMass fired Bell last month and owed him $937,000 over two years. But according to language in his contract, that total would be negated if he took a job paying more than $468,500 and mitigated if he took a job paying less than that. Since his new salary is over $700,000, the Minutemen are no longer required to pay him."

Hoosier fans are not happy at all and rightfully so. Walt Bell has proved nothing in his coaching career.

Did IU watch any game tape? Did they not see the idiotic time outs before a play was run, etc.? I hope the ink is dry!

I just had to post this! An IU fan's priorities for Walt Bell. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

1) Find/Develop a Quarterback.
2) Fix the Offensive Line to protect QB
3) Scheme receivers open, and catch both easy and contested balls.
4) Find/Develop depth at RB. No more walkons toting the rock.

Anything else?

Does he have it in him to stabilize, rehabilitate, and develop an offense so disastrous as ours was in 2021?

How long will it take? 1 year? 2?

Doubt any good G5 OC is coming to Indiana so their options were probably limited, especially if the HC is going to enter 2022 on the hot seat.

I wouldn’t hire Bell to run a high school offense. These ADs are idiots.

Win, win, loss. Win for UMASS, Win for Bell, Loss for IU. No sure what IU is seeing over the past three years. Offensive genius? I think not.

Tom Allen was DC for Willie Taggart at USF, Bell OC for Taggart at FSU. Maybe Taggart put in a really good word. Congrats Coach Bell!

I hate to say this but should we consider bringing kevin Morris back as the OC. I know he wasn’t a great head coach but he did what he needed to do as an oc
