COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri coach Gary Pinkel and athletic director Mike Alden say they followed protocol when former running back Derrick Washington was accused of rape in 2008.
Pinkel said Friday at a news conference that he learned of the allegation in October 2008 but did not take action because no charges were filed.
Alden said he was not aware then of reporting requirements for sexual violence to the Title IX coordinator. Legislation mandates schools to investigate instances of alleged sexual discrimination or violence once it has evidence of an incident.
ESPN reported Thursday two former University of Missouri female students made assault allegations against Washington before the two other cases for which he was eventually convicted.
