WSU President wants Leach, football team investigated

By WSU NewsNovember 11, 2012 

PULLMAN, Wash. -- Elson S. Floyd, President of Washington State University, announced Sunday morning that he wants his school and the Pacific-12 Conference to investigate complaints raised by junior receiver Marquess Wilson.

Wilson, from Puyallup, is the school's leading receiver. He announced Saturday that he has quit the team, citing abuse by first-year head coach Mike Leach and his staff.

"After consultation with WSU Athletic Director Bill Moos, I have asked our athletic department to fully review recent allegations raised concerning the football program and report their findings and conclusions as soon as possible," Floyd said in a statement released by the school. "Simultaneously, I have asked the Pac-12 to independently do the same. Together, both reports should get to the bottom of the matter."
