BLOOMINGTON, IND. (AP) - Indiana has hired Northwestern assistant Kevin Johns as its receivers coach and passing game coordinator.

The decision Tuesday comes one day after the Hoosiers’ top playmaker, receiver Tandon Doss, said he would give up his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

New coach Kevin Wilson has been putting together a staff. Since being hired as the Hoosiers coach a month ago, he has hired co-defensive coordinators and an offensive coordinator.

Johns joins the Hoosiers after spending the past seven seasons at Northwestern, the last five as the receivers coach. Last season, he was also in charge of the Wildcats’ passing game. In 2004 and 2005, Johns coached the Northwestern running backs. He also has coached at Richmond.
