Indiana’s Tom Allen is the coach of the year in the Big 10.

After leading the Hoosiers to a 6-1 record through the regular season and their best year in decades, the B1G announced Thursday that Allen won coach of the year from the media and his fellow coaches. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can watch a video from the conference announcing the news below.

Honestly, I can’t think of a better coach to win the award this year. I can’t think of anyone at all who deserves it more.

Ohio State might have beaten Indiana this season, but nobody has done more with less in 2020 than Tom Allen.

He didn’t just have a solid season with the Hoosiers. He might have the second best team in the B1G with Indiana. They were damn good this season, and they did it without the star recruits you see on traditional powerhouses.

Hell, they marched into Madison with a backup quarterback and dominated our offense.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Indiana, and despite the Hoosiers beating the Badgers, I’ve enjoyed their great season. Props to Allen for taking home two coach of the year awards.
