Two former University of Missouri students have come forward with assault allegations against ex- Missouri running back Derrick Washington. Washington was accused of sexually assaulting a tutor in 2010 which led to his release from the Missouri football team and a five year prison sentence.

This week, ESPN's "Outside the Lines" reported there were two additional alleged incidents. A female soccer player claims she was physically assaulted by Washington in 2010, and that her coach threatened a loss of her scholarship if she came forward.

Two more former University of Missouri students have gone public with assault allegations against ex-running back Derrick Washington, including a women's soccer player who said her coach suggested she could lose her scholarship if she pursued her complaint that Washington punched her in a 2010 fight.

A second woman says Washington raped her on campus. Prosecutors declined to file charges in that case, despite a request to do so by campus police.

The women made the statements to ESPN's "Outside the Lines" for a report published Thursday.
