 TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -Trent Miles, an assistant on Tyrone Willingham's staffs at Stanford, Notre Dame and Washington the past seven years, was chosen as the new football coach at Indiana State on Tuesday.
The Sycamores were winless last season and have won just one of their 33 games the past three years.
Miles was a wide receiver for the Sycamores and started his coaching career at Indiana State in 1987 as a graduate assistant and coach of receivers and defensive backs. He later coached at New Mexico, Oklahoma, Northern Illinois and Hawaii before joining Willingham's staff at Stanford.
He recently completed his third season as running backs coach at Washington.
``Coach Miles brings a wealth of experience having worked in some of the most respected programs in the nation, alongside some of the most respected coaches in the nation,'' Indiana State athletic director Ron Prettyman said.
Miles will take over from former Sycamores coach Dennis Raetz, who was interim coach the final seven games after Lou West was fired in September.
West, a former defensive coordinator at Toledo, was 1-25 with Indiana State, the only win coming against Missouri State in 2006. He was fired after the Sycamores dropped to 0-4 with a 54-20 home loss.
Raetz, who won 94 games in 18 years with the Sycamores, stepped down after the 1997 season and retired as associate athletic director in June. He currently is a scout for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League.
Indiana State's most recent winning season was 6-5 under Raetz in 1996.
