Indiana has reportedly hired James Madison’s Curt Cignetti as the football program’s next head coach, per Pete Thamel.

Cignetti’s JMU was one of the top programs in all of FCS, appearing in multiple national semifinal games, and then dominated the Sun Belt after making the jump to the FBS level. His name showed up late after those of Paul Chryst, Jason Candle, Sean Lewis, Justin Frye and Tom Herman.

It’s the first time Indiana conducted a national search for a new head coach since Kevin Wilson was hired over a decade ago. Wilson was previously the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.

Cignetti has been a head coach for over a decade now and won at multiple programs such as Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Elon and finally JMU. He was previously an assistant on Nick Saban’s first Alabama staff.

All this in mind, how do you feel about the hire? Vote below!
