After videotape of Rutgers head coach Mike Rice both verbally and physically abusing surfaced, college basketball coaches have been under increased scrutiny for just about every action, in public and in practice. The latest to feel the heat appears to be College of Charleston head coach Doug Wojcik.
The Cougars head coach is being investigated for potentially verbally abusing players according to a report by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
According to the report, Wojcik, who is 38-29 in two seasons since coming to Charleston, has been under investigation for a few weeks now. Those reports are also indicating a potential suspension and counseling coming for Wojcik. He still has two years left on his original contract and is scheduled to make $400,000 a year.
Wojcik was the head coach at Tulsa for seven years before coming to Charleston, compiling a record of 140-92. He was fired following the 2011-12 season, despite becoming the winningest head coach in Golden Hurricane history. The school sited declining season ticket sales as the reason, but he was soon replaced by Kansas legend Danny Manning.
In his two years at CofC, the program has missed the NCAA tournament but made an appearance in the College Basketball Invitational in his first year at the helm. The Cougars finished last season 14-18 and 6-10 in Colonial Athletic Association play.
