IU names Lynch as head coach

Bill Lynch, offensive coordinator for Indiana University’s football team, has been named head coach for the 2007 season, the school said today. Lynch has been the team’s offensive coordinator for two seasons. He also served as interim head coach last year while Coach Terry Hoeppner was recovering from surgery. Hoeppner has had two brain surgeries since December 2005 and is on his third medical leave from the team. His latest absence began in mid-March. The situation will be reevaluated after the season.
