Washington State president, AD meet with police

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Washington State University President Kirk Schulz has met with Pullman's police chief to discuss recent incidents involving Cougar football players.

Director of Athletics Bill Moos was also at the Thursday morning meeting with Police Chief Gary Jenkins, which was held in Schulz's office. The meeting came two days after football Coach Mike Leach suggested his players were being unfairly targeted by law enforcement.

Moos says it was a chance for the three leaders to discuss the recent incidents and gain a better understanding of processes and procedures.

Leach complained Tuesday night about three recent incidents that led to assault investigations by police. He said he's concerned the only people being accused of crimes in the incidents are football players.

Jenkins denied Wednesday that his officers are picking on players, saying they "treat everyone the same."
