Ohio State assistant Kevin Wilson talks coaching Miami RedHawks, exit from Indiana

Kevin Wilson: No evidence of player mistreatment at IU

Ohio State offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson on Thursday spoke publicly for the first time about allegations that he mistreated players while serving as the head coach at Indiana. In the ensuing days, a few former players came forward with stories of alleged mistreatment from Wilson across his six years as the Hoosiers' coach.

Wilson said he left medical decisions up to the training staff.

"Our offense is not broken, but there's definitely things we can update and adjust, and that's what he's doing". I know the (Ohio State athletic) department looked at everything. Said Wilson, "Anyone can have an opinion, but I know the department over there looked into everything, I know this school has looked into everything and I know we're very, very comfortable with what we're doing, where we're at and we're excited to move forward".

At Indiana, Wilson revolutionized the Hoosier offense.

"The way he played as a freshman to me was uncanny", Wilson said.

"We just go back to how much we loved being there, how much we loved our players", Wilson said. "You take a losing program and have that kind of success, that's a great commitment from a lot of people and those guys were awesome". He has a strong effect on Joe, a strong effect on the young guys, Dwayne and Tate, and he has a strong effect on me. "I haven't met his family, but he is a blessed kid and I am blessed to have a chance to coach him".

When asked about the investigation Thursday, Wilson said, "The (Ohio State) athletic director had outside counsel, found no evidence, and that's why we're here".

J.T. Barrett, who returns for a fourth year as starting quarterback, said he's impressed with Wilson's coaching pedigree and thinks he can inject some new energy into the offensive attack. No more is said. "That is what we are going to work hard to do". Wilson officially resigned from the team in December amidst allegations of player mistreatment, though athletic director Fred Glass said at the press conference announcing Wilson's departure that there was no "smoking gun" that led to in getting a new coach. By the end of the process, both Smith and Meyer said they found the information they were looking for.

"Coach Meyer's passion and energy and direction everyday is at another level".

"I think a couple of those trainers were the best I'd ever been around. I trust that you and your staff are abiding by this long standing policy". "I respect the way he does it".

Glass also cited "philosophical differences" with the coach who signed an extension with the school in 2015. We appreciate the opportunity to coach those kids.

Wilson recalled a text message he received from a former player the other day that read 'Hey man, I appreciate everything you did. "I'm appreciative of all their comments moving forward, and at the same time, we're excited about coaching these cats and do what we can". I love you.' At the same time, you move on.
