Last December, the Indianapolis Star first reported on the player mistreatment allegations that played a role in Wilson's dismissal after six seasons as head coach.
"Documents obtained by IndyStar and exclusive interviews conducted with Athletic Director Fred Glass, the injured player, Nick Carovillano, and his father, Dean, suggest that Wilson and his staff may have created an unhealthy environment for injured players," wrote Zach Osterman.
Former Hoosiers' receiver Coray Keel spoke with Osterman recently about his own miserable experience with Wilson and the coaching staff, making a few comments that — if true — make you wonder how Wilson is still working in college football. Keel suffered a concussion during his freshman year, 2014, and a torn labrum the following offseason, and says Wilson made the recovery process miserable.
"Wilson, [Keel] said, would not allow injured players to eat at team training tables until after healthy players had eaten," Osterman wrote, "and would repeatedly come over to the tent where injured players spent most of practice to scold them, telling them they were a waste of scholarship money."
