Wichita, Kan. - The Wichita State athletic department is conducting an internal review of the baseball program. In a news release, the department says the review is investigating possible improper clothing and apparel benefits to members of the baseball team that was discovered during the coaching transition earlier this year.
In the news release, Director of Athletics Eric Sexton says the matter is being taken very seriously. "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."
The university says no further details will be released until the review has been completed.
