Tom AllenTom Allen: Leading Through Biblical Principles

Tom Allen is the new head football coach at Indiana University. Allen was hired Dec 1, 2016 after former head coach Kevin Wilson was fired. Allen was in his second year as the Defensive coordinator for the Hoosiers. In his brief time at that position, he took Indiana’s defense from being ranked as one of the worst in the nation to a position in the top 40 of Division One teams. But the overriding factor in Tom Allen’s coaching and his life is his faith in Jesus Christ, and his desire to share that faith with others. As he said in an interview on Face to Face, “I believe in leading through Biblical principles, and everything I do foundationally is really found in Scripture.” Allen wants the Hoosiers to return to their days of glory. Indiana has not won the Big 10 in football since 1967, and has not won a bowl game since beating Baylor in the 1991 Copper Bowl.
