Bolton says he reported the incident to his academic advisor and the athletic department … only to hear back from the school 6 months later, after he decided to leave the program.
Chambers has owned up to the comment … and has since apologized.
“I didn’t realize that word would hurt him, and I am truly, truly sorry for that,” Chambers told ESPN.
Bolton says he went public to bring awareness to what players have to deal with … and he wants change.
“I wasn’t the first and I know I wasn’t the last. Everyone’s position to speak out isn’t the same, so I am only speaking for myself. There is a serious need for change in the way players are protected and helped across the country when faced with these situations.”
“Surface level resources are not good enough. In most cases, it is the Coach who is protected, while the player is left to deal with it or leave.”
“BE the change you want to see.”
We’ve reached out to Penn State for comment … so far, no word back.
