WICHITA, Kan. – The Wichita State athletic department is conducting an exhaustive internal review regarding improper clothing and apparel benefits to members of the baseball team that was identified during the coaching transition.

“We take this matter very seriously,” Director of Athletics Eric Sexton said. “Our commitment to institutional integrity is unwavering and we must hold everyone associated with our athletics programs accountable for lapses in judgment. We believe this to be an isolated case limited to our baseball program. However, we will look into this exhaustively to ensure our compliance with the Missouri Valley Conference and NCAA rules.”

Wichita State will not comment further until the internal review has been completed.

Bond, Schoeneck & King PLLC out of Kansas City is assisting the athletic department with the internal review.
