GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Men's basketball coach Brian Wardle is the subject of an investigation into allegations of mistreating his players.
NBC26 has confirmed UWGB Chancellor Thomas Harden received a letter from the parents of a former men's basketball player Ryan Bross, complaining that he was verbally and emotionally abused by the coach.
News of the investigation comes in the aftermath of a coaching scandal at Rutgers University. The men's basketball coach Mike Rice was fired and the college's athletics director was forced to resign after a video surfaced showing the head coach hitting and kicking players and using gay slurs as he yelled at them during practice.
