Indiana assistant Brett Diersen resigns

By Adam Rittenberg

Indiana announced Monday that defensive ends coach/recruiting coordinator Brett Diersen has resigned.

Diersen joined Kevin Wilson's staff after the departure of D-line coach Jerry Montgomery to Michigan. Diersen came to Indiana from Nebraska, where he had served as an intern.
"We appreciate Brett’s service and wish he and his fiancée Jenna the best," Wilson said in a prepared statement. "We will move forward quickly in making a quality hire that will further strengthen our staff."

Wilson will be replacing at least two assistants from his 2011 staff as co-offensive coordinator Rod Smith left last month to rejoin Rich Rodriguez at Arizona. It will be interesting to see where he turns for the recruiting coordinator post, as defensive recruiting has to be the biggest priority for the Hoosiers right now.
