MU athletic director explains why 2008 Derrick Washington allegation wasn’t investigated by school

Missouri athletic director Mike Alden said Friday he was aware of a sexual assault allegation against a football player six years ago and that he informed the then-chancellor at MU. But MU never conducted an investigation, as required by Title IX, into the alleged rape, which became public Thursday as part of an ESPN story. “Today, I am aware of all of that,” Alden said of the mandatory-reporting requirements.
