Message From President Savoie Regarding Accusations By Former Softball Players



As you may be aware, a few former softball players have accused me and Director of Athletics Dr. Bryan Maggard of inappropriate behavior toward them.


I want to assure the University community that these accusations have no merit.


However, because the University treats any accusations of impropriety with the seriousness they deserve, I have asked the University of Louisiana System to conduct an independent review of these specific allegations. I am confident the UL System inquiry will conclude that these new allegations are completely unfounded.


In the past decade as president, I have considered the safety and well-being of the University community a sacred obligation. I will continue to work every day to ensure that all members of our University family are treated with respect, dignity and fairness.




Dr. Joseph Savoie
