WSU review concludes “no report or detection of abuse”

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — WSU released its final findings from its internal review of the football program prompted by former receiver Marquess Wilson's allegations of abuse made in early November.

We have the full review posted below.

Bill Moos also said in a statement: “Last month President Floyd asked me to fully review allegations raised concerning the football program and report those findings and conclusions as soon as possible,” said Moos. “I have fulfilled his charge over the past few weeks, which included interviews with multiple student-athletes and support staff involved with the program. Once I received the findings from members of my staff, I found that the program is moving in the desired direction, that is it on-par with, or exceeds, other BSC-level programs in terms of expectations and commitment. Transition in coaching changes is rarely smooth, however, after reviewing the comments from the players that were interviewed, I am encouraged the program is moving in a positive direction.”

Perhaps of most interest and importance is Moos' statement in the review that "Throughout this review there was no report or detection of abuse or inappropriate behavior."

Moos also confirmed that Wilson recanted his claims in a text message following the UCLA game.

Moos said he did instruct coaches to stop spraying water on players who were working out in the sand pit. That directive was issued around midseason.
