The move comes one day after star receiver Marquess Wilson quit the team, blaming the coaching staff for what he called abuse of players.
Wilson says he left the program because of the actions of first-year coach Mike Leach and his staff. Wilson says the new staff has “preferred to belittle, intimidate and humiliate us,” and that included physical abuse.
WSU President Eldon Floyd says in a statement Sunday that he asked the athletic department to report findings and conclusions as soon as possible. Floyd says reviews from both the Pac-12 and the athletic department “should get to the bottom of the matter.”
