BLOOMINGTON — In the aftermath of the Outside the Lines report on ESPN that detailed alleged problems with the medical care of an Indiana rower and Hoosier football players – specifically former rower Katlin Beck and former football players Nick Carovillano and Dominique Booth – IU released the following statement:

“Although we will not comment on any specific medical case, we are confident that Indiana University provides and has provided quality medical care to our students participating in intercollegiate athletics. Any concern relative to medical or other treatment that has been brought to our attention has been immediately addressed with the highest level of seriousness and thoroughness, and we will continue to do so with any concerns raised with us.

“As a Department, we always seek ways to improve and our medical care is no exception, as recent changes have demonstrated. We will continue to look for ways across the Department to improve the student-athlete experience."

Beck and Carovillano dealt with back injuries. Booth had a concussion.

Football coach Kevin Wilson was eventually forced to resign, although specific reasons were never given other than “philosophical differences” between Wilson and athletic director Fred Glass. He has since been hired as Ohio State's offensive coordinator.

IU also implemented changes that, according to ESPN reporter Paula Lavigne, were designed to “restructure its sports medicine program to improve accountability of team doctors.”
