Hill is taking the right approach. Even if the allegations are untrue, this
would be a much larger distraction to the team if he wasn't suspended. I
hope for the sake of those involved that the allegations are not true, but if
they are, there should be no reason Winslow should ever be involved in athletics
at any level.
"In a press conference Thursday afternoon, Hill said University of Utah
officials learned Thursday morning that Arizona State University's police
department had contacted the University of Utah's Department of Public
Safety on Dec. 5, 2012, regarding Winslow."Why didn't
Utah's Department of Public Safety contact Utah's Athletic
Department?Why was Winslow allowed to continue coaching until a
blogger broke the story?At the very least, it seems that Winslow
should have been placed on administrative leave pending completion of a thorough
Zero tolerance. Kind of interesting about that Dec. 5th date of
notification and the delay. Not so sure if Dr. Hill's action is what we
would consider swift action but all of the details are not given.Sorry the U of U has to deal with this. Nobody needs this.
Ufan,Your question is clearly answered in the article. Maybe it has been
updated since you posted. The Arizona investigators asked the U Dept of Public
Safety to keep the investigation confidential. The U safety officer complied
with that request.
UteMiguelSince when do you keep an investigation of possible sexual
abuse "confidential"?For what purpose did the Arizona
officials notify the Utah safety officer if the safety officer wasn't
supposed to do anything about a possible sexual predator operating within the
Utah athletic department?
Maybe the authorities kept it confidential because they thought that having the
story broke would keep them from gathering credible evidence. They may have
told the Utah Safety office so that they could keep an eye on the coach.But I don't really know, I'm not a detective.
More news like this everyday. Reality is so often disgusting.
