SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Washington State football coach Mike Leach denies his players are subjected to any type of abuse, as alleged by star receiver Marquess Wilson.

Wilson made the allegations in a letter he released Saturday in which he quit the team and also complained that the coaching staff would "belittle, intimidate and humiliate us."

Leach said during his regular Monday meeting with reporters: "There is no truth about it at all." He described Wilson as a disgruntled player.

Asked if there had been any actions by coaches that could be construed as abuse, Leach replied: "No, no, no. Next question."
