COLUMBIA, MO (KTVI) – Former University of Missouri President Timothy Wolfe blasted current leaders of the university today.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Wolfe is seeking to correct the record on “unconscionable behaviors” that led to his own resignation in November. He claims he stepped down in order to avoid a, “Ferguson like scene on campus.”

Wolfe assigns the bulk of problems at the Columbia campus on others including former Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin.
