 PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Star receiver Marquess Wilson says he has quit the Washington State football team, and blamed the coaching staff for what he called abuse of players.
Wilson was suspended this week for an unspecified violation of team rules. He said in a press release Saturday that he has left the program because of the actions of first-year coach Mike Leach and his staff.
Wilson said the new staff has ``preferred to belittle, intimidate and humiliate us.''
Team spokesman Bill Stevens could not confirm that Wilson, the team's career receptions leader, has left. Stevens said Wilson remains suspended.
Wilson, a junior, set school single-season records last year with 82 receptions and 1,388 yards receiving. This season, he leads the team with 52 receptions for 813 yards.
