COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Missouri coach Gary Pinkel and athletic director Mike Alden say they followed what they believed to be the school's protocol when former running back Derrick Washington was accused of rape in 2008.
Pinkel said Friday at a news conference that he learned of the allegation in October 2008 but did not take action because no charges were filed.
"I can't go and call up the victim," Pinkel said. "I'm not able, legally, to do that. It's all about the information.
