Northwestern receivers coach Kevin Johns has informed head coach Pat Fitzgerald that he will leave the program for Indiana and new head coach Kevin Wilson, it was learned Monday. Johns will become the Hoosiers' receivers coach and passing game coordinator. Indiana will make a formal announcement on Tuesday.
Johns, 35, first joined NU in 1999 as a graduate assistant and then came on board full time in 2004 and also took up the position of NU's recruiting coordinator in 2008.
Johns had coached such standout NU receivers as former Wildcat Zeke Markshausen and junior Jeremy Ebert, both of whom earned all-Big Ten honors.
