Indiana is firing its good football coach (so he did something bad)

Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson is expected to be officially relieved of his duties in a 6 pm press conference in Bloomington. Wilson is coming off a six-year extension and has the Hoosiers going to a second straight bowl game, so he did something very bad, one would assume.

Turns out, Wilson is being fired over his treatment of players, according to several reports. A former Hoosier told ESPN that he and at least five current players were recently interviewed by the athletic department and university lawyers about Wilson’s mistreatment of his players.

Then there’s a story from a former player’s father, who is saying Wilson rushed his son back from a concussion and his symptoms went “haywire.”

There are plenty more tales like that one floating around out there right now. If true, and it seems many of them are, Indiana is making the right move.

    If I didn’t know better, I’d say he’s Bobby Knight’s illegitimate son based solely on his behavior.

    Shades of Billy Clyde trying to force Jasper back from an injury. Is this guy a drunk as well?

    Since the school that I graduated from and follow once hired Billy Clyde, I can’t do much gloating in the misery of IU’s coaching problems.

    Having played and been around sports all my life, I have observed that coaches are not the “sharpest tools in the shed”. Not sure why we raise them up to such heights and hang of every word they say. Just enjoy their ability to coach a game and when that becomes something that we can’t tolerate, send them to the unemployment line. I wouldn’t make many of them the CEO of a company that I might own.
