DeBord is headed to Indiana University to take the same position as offensive coordinator. He is from Muncie, Ind. and has spent time in the pros as well as the college ranks.

Tennessee’s offense was incredibly potent under DeBord averaging 36.4 points a game and scored more points this season than in any other over the course of the 120 years Tennessee football has existed. The Vols also averaged 443.7 yards per game, which was 40th in the country.
