Brian Knorr was introduced as Indiana's new defensive coordinator on Monday morning, marking the second announcement for Knorr in 2014.

It was on Jan. 10 that Air Force officially gave word of Knorr's return to its staff, where he later introduced himself to players as the defensive coordinator. Just 10 days later, he's with another program.

"We want to welcome Brian and his family to the Hoosier Nation," Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said in a press release Monday. "Brian is a strong addition to our coaching staff. He brings tremendous experience and a solid background having coached on both sides of the ball, as a defensive coordinator and as an FBS head coach. We are excited to work together to take a positive step in building a winning program that our players and fans deserve."

Knorr, an Air Force graduate who served two stints as an assistant with the program prior to this 10-day tour, was most recently the defensive coordinator at Wake Forest. He was also the head coach at Ohio from 2001-04.

"Having known Coach Wilson for the past 20 years, his personality and the type of team he fields, I am excited to join his staff," Knorr said. "There is a buzz about the direction IU Football is headed in and I look forward to bringing some of the toughness and aggressiveness that I know Coach Wilson wants to implement on the defensive side of the ball."

Aside from a short statement in a press release following Knorr's hiring, Air Force coach Troy Calhoun has made no public comments since the week following a 2-10 season.
