Caleb Cornett no longer with IU football program

Wide receiver Caleb Cornett is no longer with the Indiana program and has been dismissed from school, IU coach Kevin Wilson said Tuesday.

Cornett was suspended from the team for his role in a scuffle on Kirkwood avenue in late August. He did not appear in any games for Indiana this season.

The 21-year-old was arrested around 3:30 a.m. on August 21, but no charges were filed after it was determined that the incident was a “mutual combat scenario.” Monroe County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Bob Miller told The Herald-Times in August that another student had been harassing and later shoved Cornett, who responded by punching the man in the face.

Cornett, a Ben Davis product, played in 11 games last season and appeared primarily on special teams.


  1. Mike — any chance you could get some more detail on the “mutual combat scenario”? If it was sabers while mounted on horseback or flintlock dueling pistols in front of The Penguin, that would really be a heck of story.

    Honestly, grape job of “cop talk” to the Prosector’s Office for using three words when one would do.
