LSU didn’t drop the hammer on anyone. Instead, wrists were slapped in Baton Rouge.

That was the conclusion following a damning internal investigation done by Husch Blackwell. Much of the contents in the report centered around former LSU coach Les Miles, who is now at Kansas.

The full Husch Blackwell report can be found here courtesy of LSU.

Following the release of the report, the school gave deputy AD Verge Ausberry a 30-day suspension without pay. Assistant AD Miriam Segar was given a 21-day suspension without pay and will undergo sexual violence training.

The report published by the school claims Ausberry was made aware of a complaint made against former LSU player Drake Davis. Ausberry responded, “I don’t want to know all the details… this needs to go to someone else” before sending the alleged victim to Segar.

Ausberry issued the following statement following his suspension:

“I accept the conclusions and decisions rendered by the university and absolutely respect the commitment to putting the welfare of all students first. My entire career has been dedicated to LSU and the ideal of promoting and protecting student interests and I regret that my actions in this instance fell short of that standard. I intend to redouble my personal efforts to make our university a model for best practices in the area of domestic and campus safety and dignity.”
