Anderson University President John Pistole issued a statement that didn’t acknowledge a decision had been made, but hinted strongly at the Colts’ departure from Anderson.
“Anderson University has welcomed and enjoyed hosting the Indianapolis Colts Training Camp for the past seven years,” Pistole said in the statement. “With each passing summer, the university has understood that the specific duration and location of the training camp is under the management and discretion of the Indianapolis Colts.”
Anderson Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr. told the newspaper he is not surprised by the decision.
“I’ve been hearing through the grapevine this was likely going to happen,” he said. “You know something like this is not going to last forever.”
