On March 27, EWU volleyball coaches Michael King and Nathan Fristed were relieved of their duties by then-interim athletic director Lynn Hickey. Hickey, who has since been promoted to the permanent director of athletics role, wouldn’t elaborate on the situation at the time, calling it a “university personnel matter.” However, according to EWU records (which The Easterner obtained from the university), the dismissals occurred one week after the completion of an investigation into the alleged payment of $300 to a member of the volleyball team. The student-athlete, who is a freshman at EWU, was not identified in the records. Per her statement in the investigative report, the player went to then-head volleyball coach Michael King’s office on March 1, 2018, to discuss payment for a camp she had worked during the summer of 2017. King and Fristed were both present for the meeting. –  Michael Brock, easterneronline – Read More
