By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Wichita State Shockers men’s basketball head coach Gregg Marshall has resigned. He is the latest coach, who got in hot water due to allegations against him.

He spent 13 seasons at the school. Marshall was hired by the school in April 2007.

“This was a difficult decision, but one I feel was necessary for my family, the university and, most importantly, the student-athletes,” Marshall said. “I remain grateful for my years spent at Wichita State. I wish to thank the coaches, student-athletes, the university, the community, and all of Shocker Nation for their unending dedication, support and loyalty. I am incredibly proud of this men’s basketball program and all it has achieved over the past 14 years and am confident of its continued success. I’m incredibly proud of this basketball program.”

In October, The Athletic reported that Marshall was under investigation for misconduct. He will be paid $7.75 million over the next six years as part of his settlement with the school.

“Our student-athletes are our primary concern,” Director of Athletics Darron Boatright said. “While the university acknowledges the success of the basketball program under Coach Marshall, this decision is in the best interest of the university, its student-athletes, and the WSU community. WSU will continue its pursuit of excellence with the help of its student-athletes, staff, and loyal supporters of the basketball program.”

He is 525-204 as a head coach with the Winthrop Eagles and the Shockers. Marshall went 194-83 with the Eagles, before going 331–121 at Wichita State.

No interim head coach has been appointed at this time.
