GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A second complaint has been lodged against the men's basketball coach at Wisconsin-Green Bay, this one alleging verbal abuse and bullying.

The latest complaint was filed by Gina Cougill, the mother of senior Brennan Cougill. The Green Bay Press-Gazette says she wrote to the university chancellor last week, after the parents of another player filed an initial complaint.

Cougill accuses coach Brian Wardle of minimizing her son's clinical depression as a "distraction" to the team. She also says other players have been subjected to worse treatment.

The university has hired a lawyer to conduct an independent investigation.

The school and the parents who filed the first complaint have declined to reveal those allegations.

After the first complaint Wardle said he'll support the investigation process and won't comment further.
