Indiana has hired former Arizona offensive coordinator Seth Littrell for the same position.

Kevin Johns, last year's co-offensive coordinator, will stay on as assistant offensive coordinator. The Hoosiers' other co-coordinator from last season, Rod Smith, left last month to take the coordinator's job at Arizona.

Littrell spent the last three seasons at Arizona with former coach Mike Stoops and the previous four seasons at Texas Tech with Mike Leach. He also was a graduate assistant at Kansas.

Littrell was a running back at Oklahoma and won the national championship in 2000.

The move comes one day after Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said defensive ends coach Brett Diersen resigned.

Wilson said Indiana will move quickly to find a replacement for Diersen.
