Wyoming’s secondary coach, Curt Mallory has been hired as the head coach of the Indiana State Sycamores.
Mallory had been with Wyoming since the 2015 season, but is returning to the Great Lakes area, where he’s spent all of his college football career.
Mallory’s years as head coach have been less than adequate. His defenses over the last two years have ranked near the bottom of Division I football in categories like passer rating, touchdowns, and completion percentage.
However, his secondary ranked 30th in the country in passing yards per game with 196.9 in 2015, although teams attempted 279 passes (fewest in the nation). That figure rose to 261.3 yards per game in 2016 (106th).
Mallory’s leaving will result in Craig Bohl looking for his third secondary coach in four years.
Indiana State went 4-7 as a member of the MVC last season. The Sycamores have gone 18-30 in four years with their previous head coach, Mike Sanford.
Mallory brings a long resume to ISU, having coached at Akron, Ball State, Central Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.
We wish Mallory the best at his new position at Indiana State.
