I have heard of aggressive coaching – but this is ridiculous.
First reported by The Athletic, Head Coach of the Wichita State Shockers, Gregg Marshall, is facing some rather disturbing allegations. The incidents allegedly took place during the 2015-16 season, where Marshall is being accused of hitting a former player.
Shaquille Morris, a former center for the Shockers, is the player who Marshall allegedly struck. On top of this, Marshall was also said to have “put his hands around the neck” of assistant coach Kyle Linsted, who is now with the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
According to the report, the school has conducted interviews and are doing a lengthy investigation to get to the bottom of the incident. There is no place for this in college athletics. If Marshall is found guilty of the allegations, his contract must be terminated immediately without question.
Stay tuned to The Voice of Motown for updates on the situation.
