Holy Shit, Gregg Marshall Is Under Investigation At Wichita State For Allegedly Punching A Player And Threatening A Student By Saying 'Do You Know Who The Fuck I Am?'

[The Athletic] - • During a practice that season, Shaq Morris attempted to block teammate Zach Brown’s shot. Brown fell awkwardly on the play, and Marshall rushed over and began chewing out Morris for what he deemed a dirty play and then shoved Morris in the back, according to multiple players who witnessed the incident.

Marshall told Morris to “get the fuck out of practice” and then followed him out of the practice gym, two players said. Before Morris could exit the double doors of the gym, Marshall ran up behind Morris and punched Morris between the shoulders near his neck, according to the players. An assistant coach intervened.

Instead, Marshall quickly turned his car around and followed the student’s car, eventually blocking his car at an intersection in the parking lot. According to an eyewitness, Marshall got out of his car and started yelling at the student, asking “Do you know who the fuck I am?”

The student had his window down and responded, “I don’t give a fuck who you are.” Marshall approached the car and, according to the eyewitness, attempted to punch the student through the driver’s window.

Well, this is certainly some major news here in college hoops. Needless to say these are some major allegations when you look at it. I also feel like there will be more coming out regarding Marshall. That said, Marshall has been known as a prick for some time. Remember this from a scrimmage? 

Or you know, when his wife lost her shit during an NCAA Tournament game? 

But back to the main story. Quite simply you can't punch a player, especially if he has your back turned to you. If you want to punch him at least wait until you're both squared up. It would not shock me, if this continues to be proven true, that it will cost Marshall his job. And that alone is massive news. Marshall was linked to so many major jobs and turned Wichita State into a consistent top-25 program. 

Marshall dropping a 'do you know who the fuck I am' is on brand. That's something I could 100% see him saying but what are you doing dude? You're the head coach at Wichita State. Of course they know who the fuck you are. Just take it easy dude. 

Either way, this is massive and we'll find out more as the days go on. Less than 7 weeks until the season starts, so whatever Wichita decides to do here will be discussed quite a bit with the season right around the corner.

So you know how I mentioned in the first paragraph that there will be more coming out. Yep, there was and it ain't great if you're Marshall: 

Choking an assistant coach, Shaq Morris (a starter for the program) going on record to explain how Marshall punched him the day he told him his mom had cancer. Hell, Fred VanVleet nearly led a mutiny against Marshall (h/t Stadium)

Following the incident, Morris and multiple other players said that team leader Fred VanVleet, currently with the NBA’s Toronto Raptors, told an assistant the players would not practice the following day unless Marshall apologized to Morris.

Yeah, I don't see how Marshall makes it out of this with a job. I know he's a legend at Wichita State and he's consistently one of the best coaches in the game. But when you have players now going on record with these allegations and multiple allegations it's nearly impossible to keep him. Not to mention how many kids they had transfer out of the program recently. Everyone was wondering what the hell was happening with that and now we know why.
