DePauw University is a possible site for the camp.

The Indianapolis Colts will not return to training camp at Anderson University, according to a report by the Anderson Herald Bulletin. “Reliable sources” told the newspaper that the Colts would be seeking a new location, which could be DePauw University in Greencastle, the Indianapolis Star reported. The Colts would only say a number of sites are being considered. The contract at Anderson had been renewed on a yearly basis. It's also possible the Colts will hold camp at their regular practice facility.

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.”
