Via Jessica Luther @Power Forward: Bob Stoops is the head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners football team.

Stoops’ team has worked very hard this off season to transfer Dorial Green-Beckham, a former wide receiver from Missouri, to their school to play this season (they found out on Friday that there efforts were for naught).

Green-Beckham was kicked off of Missouri’s team for alleging pushing a friend of his girlfriend’s down some stairs. Gary Pinkel, G-B’s former coach at Missouri, has recently said it was because of that incident and “other information” he knew about his WR (G-B has a history of off-field incidents).

The news about G-B broke in April at the same time that Missouri was still dealing with the effects of a damning January report by Outside The Lines, revealing that the school might have ignored and failed to investigate a case where multiple football players raped a fellow student; she later committed suicide. About the time G-B got in trouble, the president of Missouri was passing an executive order changing how reporting of sexual assault would work on campus.

Missouri could also have known that Outside The Lines was working on a different piece about their program. This latest OTL report, which was published on Friday, is about former Missouri running back Derrick Washington, who was dismissed from the team 2010 after being charged with sexual battery (for which he was found guilty and served 120 days because he was a first-time offender; then he returnedto the field and played ball at Tuskegee). TURNS OUT, Washington had been accused of violence against women, including sexual assault, THREE other times before he was finally arrested for the fourth incident. And his coaches and school administrators knew about this. In response to this latest OTL report, Pinkel admitted on Friday that “he knew about a 2008 rape allegation against former running back Derrick Washington, but didn’t discipline him because police didn’t file charges.”
