Army Football Coach Responds to Daily Beast Investigation

U.S. Army football head coach Jeff Monken responded to The Daily Beast's story concerning quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw ahead of Saturday's Army-Navy game in Philadelphia. ESPN College Game Day asked Monken about the revelation that Bradshaw was investigated over a claim of sexual assault by a female cadet in 2014 and cleared by West Point and the Army. “He’s a great kid. The facts are the facts,” Monken said. “We are going to treat him and everybody else exactly the same. And that’s important. It’s important to do that and not favor any one cadet over another.” The accuser, Madeline Lewis, was threatened and harassed by fellow cadets and claims Army investigators interrogated her sexual history. Lewis chose not to return to West Point following a knee injury.
