South Carolina issues statement after OC Mike Bobo was named in Colorado State allegations article
The Colorado State athletics department is in turmoil right now, as athletes in various sports, including football, have alleged mistreatment and lax COVID-19 protocols.
The allegations outlined in this article from the Coloradoan involve current coach Steve Addazio, but there is also a mention of former coach Mike Bobo.
Since Bobo is now the offensive coordinator at South Carolina, the Gamecocks issued a statement on the report:
… made against Coach Bobo during his time at South Carolina, we are in the process of doing our due diligence and have already been in contact with the administration at Colorado State and with Coach Bobo to gain more information and to determine the facts."

The part of the Coloradoan article that mentioned Bobo had to do with allegations of racially insensitive remarks:
They said that loss of trust continued when (CSU AD Joe) Parker failed to address player and staff complaints involving Bobo, who they accused of making racially insensitive comments and verbally harassing assistant coaches, players and staff during his five years.
It’s unclear what, if any, action the Gamecocks will take. As the statement indicates, they’ll gather more facts before determining anything.
