The family of the late University of Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler issued a statement Tuesday rejecting claims that he knew of the sexual abuse from former school Dr. Robert Anderson.
Former athletes on Wednesday urged the University of Michigan's governing board to launch a full investigation of sexual abuse committed by a late doctor and how the school failed to stop him during his decades on campus.
“I will continue to fight in any way possible," he said. "Because I believe in the guy. And I don’t think it’s fair to crucify and to bury the guy on just a charge of, 'Oh he said.'"
Matt Schembechler was among those abused by sports doctor Robert Anderson when he was only 10 years old. On Thursday, he plans to detail the abuse, that he told his adopted dad about it, and his father's response.
The son of former Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler plans to speak Thursday on the alleged abuse committed by a former sports doctor at the University of Michigan and his father's knowledge of the abuse.
"If a player flunked a class, Bo knew, if a player got a speeding ticket, Bo knew," he said. "He would brag and laugh that he knew everything. So we knew Bo knew what we were going through. Bo knew. Yet, he didn’t stop it."
