Gregg Marshall Allegations Illustrate the Wichita State Coach's Own Weakness

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Spelled out in uncensored English by The Athletic on Tuesday, the latest stories of abusive behavior by Wichita State basketball coach Gregg Marshall are, in a word, gross. His alleged use of slang terms for female anatomy to insult his players’ manhood and insinuate a lack of toughness actually perform the opposite of their intentions.

They graphically illustrate Marshall’s own weakness.

This is a man who can’t coach fortitude without getting into the gutter, who confuses challenging his players with belittling them, who believes basketball is some kind of weird testosterone cage match.
