Former Michigan Players: Bo Schembechler Ignored Warnings About Dr. Robert Anderson

Two former Michigan football players joined Matt Schembechler, son of longtime Wolverines head coach and athletic director Bo, in speaking about the sexual abuse they suffered at the hands of former team doctor Robert Anderson.

Dan Kwiatkowski, Gilvanni Johnson and Matt Schembechler said Bo Schembechler ignored repeated warnings about Anderson's behavior, including an assault on Matt Schembechler when he was 10 years old.

"[Bo] believed no man is more important than the team. Dr. Anderson was part of Bo's team, therefore he was more important than any man," Matt Schembechler said during a Thursday press conference.
