IU football head coach Tom Allen pumps his players up before a game Nov. 16, 2019, at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pennsylvania. Indiana announced Paul Randolph will be next season's defensive line coach Wednesday.

Indiana football hired Texas Tech University coach Paul Randolph to be its new defensive line coach, per an IU Athletics release Wednesday.

"We are really pleased to welcome Paul to IU," head coach Tom Allen said in the release. "His experience at the highest level is going to be beneficial for our defensive line. Paul's another man on our staff of high character and is a strong leader, and I can't wait for our young men to get to work with him."

Randolph was the defensive line coach at Texas Tech from 2019-2021 after holding the same position at the University of Memphis from 2016-2018. Prior to that, Randolph was the co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach at the University of Tulsa, the University of Pittsburgh and Arizona State University.

Randolph will take over for Kevin Peoples, who left Indiana for the defensive line coaching position at the University of Missouri on Jan. 7.
