On Saturday night, Marquess Wilson released the letter that has sent a lot of people into a frenzy, but WSU President Elson Floyd will not have it detract from his school too long. He has requested (and will receive) a double investigation from Bill Moos and the Pac-12 Conference to get to the bottom of this as soon as humanly possible.

"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. Simultaneously, I have asked the Pac-12 to independently do the same. Together, both reports should get to the bottom of the matter.Elson S. Floyd, Ph.D.PresidentWashington State University"

Obviously with Mike Leach’s past allegations from Texas Tech still plaguing him to this day, Floyd and the rest of Washington State University wants an answer. More importantly, they want to clear up their coach’s name as soon as possible so that they can continue to move forward on the path to contention in the Pac-12. If anything did happen there will be swift action, but don’t expect Leach to be fired. Remember the particular physical allegations were assistant coaches (which has been denied by all of the coaching staff), just like Leach’s last incident which has since been cleared.
