Source: Indiana was looking into Kevin Wilson’s treatment of players

A source with ties to the Indiana program confirms the report to CQ, and states the inquiry may have been unintentionally pushed forward by Zander Diamont’s public comments last week.

Sources close to the Indiana football program tell CrimsonQuarry that Kevin Wilson’s dismissal may surround an athletic department investigation into Wilson’s treatment of players on the roster — and may have reached full-throttle after of Zander Diamont’s retirement comments about concussions last week after the Purdue game.

ESPN’s Mark Schlabach first reported that Indiana had talked to former and current players about Wilson’s treatment of players.

The Indiana Daily Student’s Brody Miller adds to that report, with this from former IU player Laray Smith.

More to come as this develops.
