Wichita State investigating allegations of abuse against Gregg Marshall

Wichita State is conducting an internal investigation into the behavior of men’s basketball coach Gregg Marshall according to a report first released by The Athletic.

The Athletic detailed multiple alleged incidents involving Marshall verbally and physically abusing players, staff, and WSU students. Allegations include punching former player Shaq Morris during practice in 2015, choking assistant coach Kyle Lindsted during the 2016-17 season, and a road rage incident with a student-athlete who had parked in Marshall’s space.

According to a second report by Stadium, Marshall made racially insensitive to multiple players, including Poor Bear-Chandler who is of Native-American descent, and Jaime Echenique who is from Columbia.

In his 13 seasons at WSU, Marshall has gone 331-121 (.732), including 23-8 mark during the 2019-20 season. However, this spring, seven players have transferred from the Shockers program.

More on this story as it continues to develop.
