WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita State President John Bardo was briefed Monday on the allegations of mental and verbal abuse against head coach Jody Adams.
An internal review is being conducted, but no decisions will be made until all former and current players feedback has been thoroughly looked over.
On Monday, KSN spoke with Carlai Moore, one of Adams’ former players who went on to be one of her assistant coaches at Wichita State University from 2008-2012 (see interview below).
KSN asked her about the transfers from the program and the accusations Adams is facing.
“You see this across all programs. If there’s a change in environment or a change in a coach, if there’s a change in style of coaching, players make decisions off of things like that and we have to think about perception beaus reality,” said Carlai Moore. “You have to think about the perception of reality in an 18 or 19 year old versus what adults are trying to present them. We’ve been where they are. We know what it takes to get to the top, and right now, they’re experiencing that growing process so as an 18 or 19 year old you think everything is tough. You think you’re being reared unfairly because no one has pushed you to that level of potential you have and that’s what Jody did.”
KSN will continue to ask questions of the university and bring you the answer of what’s really going on inside the program.
