BLOOMINGTON-Troy Douglas, who coached IU's cornerbacks in each of the past two seasons, will not be retained for the 2006 season, IU Coach Terry Hoeppner announced Monday.
Douglas was one of three assistant coaches that Hoeppner retained from Gerry DiNardo's staff when he took the Indiana job last year. In addition to coaching the Hoosiers' cornerbacks, Douglas also served as Hoeppner's recruiting coordinator.
"We sincerely thank Troy for his efforts," Hoeppner said in a prepared statement. "We wish Troy and his family the best in their future endeavors."
Douglas' stable of cornerbacks was dealt a tough blow early in the season when starting senior Buster Larkins was lost for the season. That left a pair of true sophomores – Leslie Majors and Tracy Porter – as the only experienced covermen on the Indiana roster. Indiana gave up 202.5 yards/game through the air, including 14 touchdowns.
