The College of Charleston men’s basketball team released a statement Wednesday in the wake of Tuesday’s firing of head coach Doug Wojcik.

College of Charleston president Glenn McConnell announced the termination of Wojcik’s contract Tuesday afternoon after months of investigation surrounding allegations of player abuse.

“These past few weeks have been difficult for us, yet in many ways it has brought us closer together as a team.

The uncertainty of the outcome of the investigation, as well as seeing our confidential testimonies suddenly exposed for the world to see, has been unsettling to say the least.

We would like to thank our families, fans, members of the Cougar Club and the administration at the College of Charleston for their unwavering support during this horrendous situation.

There have been many half-truths and misinformation that have surfaced during the investigation. We know, and our coaches know, what really happened over the last two seasons, and we as players did our best to report that information truthfully and accurately to the appropriate people.

We completely and wholeheartedly concur with the findings of the investigation and the actions that President McConnell has taken in this matter.

None of us will be making individual comments to the media on the situations we endured.

We forgive Coach Wojcik and hope that he and his family can move forward in a positive manner from here.

We are looking forward to putting this behind us and getting back to what we are here to do in the first place - get an excellent college education and reach our full potential as athletes and as a team on the basketball court.” – College of Charleston Men’s Basketball Team
