Christian Spears, who is the athletics director at Marshall University, released the following Thursday:

“I am just incredibly disappointed in the irresponsible and demonstrably false reporting by the NY Times. We are exploring all legal options at this time. I will have no further comment, instead deferring to the University of Alabama’s statement on the matter.”

UA published a statement Wednesday evening stating that the reports were incorrect.
