Wichita State University has ordered an independent investigation of alleged abuse by men’s basketball coach Gregg Marshall, the school confirmed Friday.
But in the meantime it will be business as usual for the team, as Marshall and the team will continue to prepare for the upcoming season as normal, the school said in a written statement.
Wichita State ordered the investigation into Marshall’s conduct by an outside law firm earlier this year and acknowledged it only after published reports by Stadium and The Athletic, two major sports news outlets.
One of those reports was the result of a six-month investigation by college basketball insider Jeff Goodman outlining a pattern of physical and verbal abuse by Marshall that has driven away some players.
Among the allegations in Goodman’s report, which was published by Stadium:
▪ Marshall punched former Shocker center Shaquille Morris in the head during an October 2015 practice.
