Independent Review Of WSU Football Rejects Abuse Allegations
PRESS RELEASE FROM WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY: An independent review by the Pac-12 Conference found no evidence of player abuse in the Washington State University football program. The review, released Tuesday, reaffirms findings of an internal review by the university's athletics department.
Reviewers said, "Based on the evidence developed in this investigation, there is no basis to conclude that there were any instances of physical, emotional or verbal abuse by University football coaches." The full report is available here.
WSU President Elson S. Floyd requested reviews by the WSU Athletics Department and by the Pac-12 on Nov. 11 in response to allegations of abuse by former WSU football player Marquess Wilson. "
I am pleased with the outcome of both reviews," Floyd said. "The well-being of all WSU students is our highest priority, and it was important to take seriously allegations against the program. Now that the reviews are completed and have rejected those allegations, we will continue to move forward with our goal of establishing a successful program while maintaining the high standards shared by Washington State University, WSU Athletics and Coach Leach."
