BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Bill Lynch will remain Indiana's football coach under a new four-year contract.
Lynch was the Hoosiers' interim coach this season following the death of Terry Hoeppner from complications of a brain tumor. Lynch guided the Hoosiers to a 7-5 record and the team is expected to receive its first bowl bid since 1993.
``Bill Lynch and his staff showed great leadership under trying circumstances,'' athletic director Rick Greenspan said in a statement. ``We are confident that the program can achieve consistent success under Bill's leadership.''
Lynch's contract runs through July 1, 2012. Terms of the deal were not released.
