Last Saturday Washington State star wide receiver Marquess Wilson accused head coach Mike Leach of abuse in a letter in which he also announced that he’d quit the team.

The Washington State responded to the allegations Monday.

“There is no truth about it at all.” He described Wilson as a disgruntled player.

“Sixty five people went through that workout, and he left after 15 minutes and nobody went after him,” Leach said. “That says more about him than anybody or anything else.”

Washington State’s President asked the athletic department as well as the PAC-12 to launch investigations into the allegations.  Leach said the investigation would:

“dispel all the falsehoods that surround this.”

It will be some time before any investigation will be complete, until then it’s just one person’s word against the other.
