Following the release of a report detailing the events leading up to the resignation of former Missouri basketball coach Quin Snyder, independent investigators Jean Paul Bradshaw and Dalton Wright spoke with the media for nearly an hour Thursday about their findings.
Bradshaw and Wright, who were asked by UM System President Elson Floyd on Feb. 20 to examine Snyder’s exit from the program, found no evidence of illegal activity in the handling of the coach’s departure, but criticized the university’s handling of “crisis situations” and called for better handling of such situations in the future.
“No one was cheated and no laws were broken,” said Bradshaw, a Kansas City lawyer. “But there’s a lot of things by a lot of people that could have been done differently in this...a number of things that people could have done differntly, but that they didn’t do.”
Floyd, MU Chancellor Brady Deaton and Athletic Director Mike Alden, each considered a primary player in the on-going saga, were not available for comment follow Bradshaw and Wright’s press conference.
