Statement on WKU Hilltopper Basketball

WKU Director of Athletics Todd Stewart announced today (March 17) that Fredrick Edmond, Marlon Hunter and Chris McNeal have been suspended from the men’s basketball program following the outcome of a hearing conducted by the University Disciplinary Committee Wednesday night.

“Federal law prevents us from public discussion of any details related to student disciplinary cases,” Stewart said.

No information concerning the disciplinary charges or outcome will be released by the University.

Stewart also announced that head coach Ray Harper has resigned from his position. He will remain in paid status through the end of his contract term, June 30, 2016.

“I would like to thank Ray Harper for his many contributions to our program over the past eight years,” Stewart said. “Today is obviously a very difficult day. President Gary Ransdell and I met with our team a short while ago. We will begin the process of identifying and hiring our next head coach immediately.”
