Indiana defensive tackles coach and recruiting coordinator Mark Hagen will be the new linebackers coach Texas A&M, according to, The Eagle's online partner for recruiting news. Hagen replaces Matt Wallerstedt, who accepted the defensive coordinator position at Texas Tech last week.

Hagen just completed his second season at Indiana. Hagen coached at Purdue -- the alma mater of A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin -- for nine seasons before heading to Indiana to coach under Kevin Wilson, a close friend of Sumlin's from their time on Oklahoma's staff.

    Well we are gonna need some more LB recruits. Can always go the juco route on backers, but I like to watch those guys for more than 2 years. They're the captains of the defense and the ones most fans recognize. Just saying

    The AggieSports tweet suggests Hagen has been a DT coach and recruiting coordinator at Indiana. Not that I have an opinion on that, but I think that's fascinating.
