Alabama offensive coordinator Tommy Rees could be a candidate to replace Tom Allen at Indiana.

According to The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, Rees is among an early group of candidates expected to receive consideration for the IU head coaching position. Allen was fired on Sunday after his team lost to Purdue to close out the year 3-9.

Feldman also named South Alabama’s Kane Wommack, Michigan offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore, Ohio State offensive line coach Justin Frye, and several others.

Rees came to Tuscaloosa this offseason to fill the offensive coordinator vacancy after being the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Notre Dame from 2017-2022.

His coaching career began at Northwestern in 2015 as an offensive graduate assistant. After 1 season with the Wildcats, he worked with the San Diego Chargers in 2016 as an assistant.

Rees played quarterback for the Fighting Irish from 2010-2013.

Rees got to mentor Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe this season. Milroe has been a big part of the offense’s success with 2,562 yards passing and 33 total touchdowns in 2023. The Alabama offense averaged 409.1 yards per game this season, which ranked 6th in the SEC.

The Crimson Tide moved to 11-1 after beating Auburn 27-24 in another wild edition of the Iron Bowl. Alabama is now preparing to face Georgia in the SEC title game on Dec. 2.
