WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue has announced that tight ends coach Terry Malone has been named offensive coordinator.

Coach Darrell Hazell said Tuesday in a news release that Malone, who still will coach tight ends, has a “winning pedigree.”

Malone joined the Purdue staff in February after spending nine seasons as the tight ends coach with the New Orleans Saints. He also has been an offensive coordinator at Michigan and Bowling Green.

His time as offensive coordinator at Michigan from 2002 to 2005 saw 14 first-team All-Big Ten selections. He also was a finalist for the 2003 Broyles Award, given to the top assistant coach.

Malone said in the news release that he’s looking forward to seeing the young players “have success.”

Purdue went 2-10 this season.
