Kasey Teegardin will be named the new safeties coach for the IU football program, a source with IU Athletics confirmed to the Indiana Daily Student on Tuesday. 

The source said Teegardin will be officially announced as the safeties coach "hopefully this week," prior to the start of IU's spring practice. 

Teegardin was a defensive graduate assistant with IU from 2014-2016. He was the director of on-campus recruiting for IU in 2017.

Most recently, he was the assistant coach and defensive coordinator at Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, West Virginia. Wheeling Jesuit was going to play an exhibition schedule in 2018-19 after announcing in June 2017 it would field a football team for the first time in its history.

Prior to his time with the Hoosiers, Teegardin was the special teams coordinator and linebackers coach at Valparaiso University.

He played at the University of Charleston and graduated from the school in 2007.

Teegardin will take over as safeties coach after Noah Joseph officially left the IU program last week to become the co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach at Rutgers University.
