Indiana football is set to hire current Dallas Cowboys wide receivers coach Adam Henry as the program’s new wide receivers coach, a source confirmed to the Indiana Daily Student on Wednesday morning. 

Henry will also assume the co-offensive coordinator title, which was previously held by former Indiana wide receivers coach Grant Heard. Heard left for the same position with the University of Central Florida on March 2.

Henry is Indiana’s second hire of the offseason with NFL experience after the Hoosiers hired Craig Johnson to fill the running backs coach position vacated by Deland McCullough.

Henry has previous experience coaching wide receivers in college at McNeese State University and Louisiana State University, where he coached future NFL wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. 

In the NFL, Henry coached wide receivers with the San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, Cleveland Browns and, most recently, the Dallas Cowboys. He also coached tight ends with the then-Oakland Raiders from 2009-11.

Henry has worked with multiple pro bowlers in his coaching career including Beckham Jr., Landry, CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper. 

Bruce Feldman of The Athletic was first to report Henry’s hiring.
