    "The Indiana University Athletic Department and the Track and Cross Country Team's staff were major players in helping me to blossom and become the best athlete that I could be. Sam Bell was one of the preeminent middle distance and distance coaches in the world and was the major factor in my rise to success, not only in the NCAA but nationally and internationally. But more importantly, I believe that the athletic, academic, social and cultural experiences I had during my four years as an IU student-athlete made me a better person, a better individual and a better human being than I would have been without them. I am very proud, honored and humbled to be a part of the great Indiana University family."

    Head Football Coach, 1984-96

    Indiana's head football coach from 1984-96, Bill Mallory is Indiana University's winningest football coach, having compiled a 69-77-3 record. Before taking over the head coaching reigns at Indiana in 1984, Mallory coached three other schools to national prominence. While compiling a 165-121-4 record at Miami (Ohio), Colorado, Northern Illinois, and Indiana, Mallory became one of only a handful of coaches in history to guide three different programs to top 20 finishes in national polls. In 1987, Mallory became the first coach to be awarded back-to-back Big Ten coach-of-the-year honors. While at Indiana, Mallory led the Hoosiers to six bowl games including victories in the 1998 Liberty Bowl and the 1991 Copper Bowl. He also led IU to a top 20 ranking in 1988.

    "I will always appreciate the opportunity given to me to be the head football coach at Indiana University. I cherish all of the people with whom I was associated during my 13-year tenure at IU. Those people were my coaching staff, the players, the support staff, the administration, the faculty, and the loyal Hoosier supporters. These people made my experience at IU very enjoyable and rewarding. It has also been very rewarding to watch my former players, after they have graduated from IU, continue succeeding in their future endeavors. This has been even more rewarding than our victories and Bowl Games. I will always be thankful and appreciative to have been a part of the program I dearly love, Indiana University football."

    "Indiana University has meant so much to me over my lifetime. Having had both parents attend IU, I grew up coming to IU football and basketball games. I always felt something special at IU before, during, and after college. The opportunity to represent IU in tennis was very unique and a special experience. Wearing red and white was a great source of pride for me. I always gave 100 percent to my tennis and studies because I felt having a scholarship was a gift and I didn't want to let down the team, myself, or IU. Indiana University was all around the best place for me to study and further my tennis. Two of my very best friends in life were my teammates for three years at IU. The bond we share is very important to me. When I was on tour and today, living in the East, I am always proud to tell people where I am from and more proud when they ask me where I went to school to tell them "Indiana University." IU has meant many things at different times to me. Pride, dedication, commitment, and loyalty are the most important things that Indiana has meant and taught me. Planning to visit Indiana is also very special because it allows me to briefly relive a very exciting and wonderful time in my life."
