WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Bob Diaco's Louisiana Tech defense made quite the impression in last week's bowl shutout of Miami.
On Thursday, he was rewarded when Purdue coach Jeff Brohm announced Diaco would be the Boilermakers new defensive coordinator.
"We're very excited to bring Bob to Purdue," Brohm said. "He is one of the most well-respected defensive coaches in the country and has proven throughout his career to be an innovator on that side of the ball."
