Morgan State University recently reassigned women’s basketball coach Donald Beasley after placing him on administrative leave over allegations that he had verbally abused his players.
Coach Beasley joined Ed Norris and Rob Long to give his side of the recent accusations of coach abuse at Morgan State.
Beasley, who was making $115,000 a year according to the state salary database, finished his 11th year as the program’s all-time winningest coach with a 141-191 record. After a player and several parents came forward with the allegations, the school began an investigation. According to some parents, players who were returning for 2016-17 had discussed the possibility of boycotting the season to protest the alleged treatment.
Edward Davis Jr., a Morgan State assistant coach for the past two years, was named interim head coach by athletic director Floyd Kerr.
