GREEN BAY - University of Wisconsin-Green Bay leaders have received an investigator's report into allegations of abuse against men's basketball coach Brian Wardle.
The investigation of allegations of verbal and emotional abuse by Wardle began last month. The mother of former Phoenix player Ryan Bross sent a letter to the school, prompting the investigation. A second parent, the mother of former forward Brennan Cougill, sent a letter as well about Wardle's coaching.
Local attorney Joe Nicks led the investigation.
The university released a statement, which read, in part:
"Chancellor Tom Harden said this morning ... that the University will publicly release the investigator's report as soon as it is legally permissible to do so.
Because the allegations arise out of Mr. Wardle's employment at the University, the Wisconsin Public Records law requires the institution to provide a notification to him that the report will be publicly released.
That notification is consistent with past UW System practice and the open records law provision. Mr. Wardle has up to 10 days to review his copy of the report and challenge whether all or part of the document should be released.
Before the report and any decision are released to the public, Chancellor Harden is planning to meet with Coach Wardle. The Chancellor said the University will have no further comment until the report is made public."
