At least twenty-four former University of Michigan football players who claim they were sexually assaulted by U-M physician Dr. Robert Anderson while they were student-athletes will hold a press conference Wednesday morning demanding action from the university. The press conference will be held outside of Michigan Stadium.
According to a Tuesday press release, former students-athletes and other students will, "Call for immediate action ahead of this week's U-M Board of Regents meeting."
Over the past year hundreds of U-M students have accused Dr. Anderson of sexually assaulting them at the university. Anderson's career at Michigan spanned a period from the 1960's until 2002.
Last Thursday, Matt Schembechler, who is the son of Bo Schembechler, and two former Michigan football players, Gilvanni Johnson and David Kwiatkowski, called a press conference coming forward to state that they were victims of Anderson and that they told coach Schembechler that they were abused. All three said that Schembechler did not do anything to stop the abuse.
