Coach Dobbs retired after that season and Mc Graw transferred to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. The board also investigated claims made by the patient of inappropriate contact initiated by Mc Graw, but the "Findings of Fact" document issued by the board on October 21, 1988, at the end of its investigation includes no reference to any physical contact of any kind.
