According to USA Today, former point guard for the TS basketball team, Jaylen Shead, was the first to call out coach Danny Kaspar.
Shead, who transferred to Washington State for his final season, said on Twitter, “I could not turn away from the many racially insensitive things that were said to me and other teammates.”
In addition to this, Shead said Kasper told an international player that he’d have him deported for not bringing on his best game.
Kasper also tried to motivate athletes to run by saying they would go faster if a “brown man with a (turban) and an AK-47” entered the practice sessions, according to Shead.
Alex Peacock, a former Texas State teammate of Shead’s, also backed the allegations.
