College of Charleston coach Doug Wojcik is being investigated by the school for verbal abuse of players, according to reports Wednesday.

ESPN.com confirmed multiple reports that Wojcik, 50, has been under investigation for the past few weeks. The Post and Courier reported that Wojcik is expected to be placed on probation for the month of August and will also undergo counseling.

Players reportedly didn't react well to Wojcik's style after having played for former coach Bobby Cremins. According to ESPN.com, Wojcik's rigid style was dramatically different than the laid-back Cremins.

Wojcik is 38-29 in two seasons since arriving at Charleston. He has three years left on a five-year contract. He was previously the head coach at Tulsa, where he compiled a 140-92 mark in seven seasons.
