In May, the investigation moved into the Title IX office, which tried to determine whether there were violations of the federal law that bans discrimination on the basis of sex. Earleywine was interviewed by a representative from the Title IX office on May 23, according to a source.

The Title IX leg of the investigation concluded in early August, with Interim Chancellor Hank Foley declaring that the probe determined Earleywine had committed no Title IX violations.

From there, final details were hashed out with university lawyers before the decision was officially made to retain Earleywine, a source said.

Sami Fagan, a senior last season and a member of the council who helped lead the protest, was thrilled when Rhoades left for the AD job at Baylor and hoped it would mean Earleywine would return for an 11th season at Mizzou.

"I’m relieved because I think Coach E deserves to remain the coach at Mizzou because he’s s a Missouri guy," she said in a phone interview. "He’s invested so much into that school. He’s just a great man. I wouldn’t have stood up for him if he didn’t help me as a player but more importantly as a person. I am so thankful for all that he’s done for me. My sister is committed to Mizzou and I wouldn’t let he go there if he wasn’t a great coach and a great man. For all he’s done for me, I had to stand up as a player and do what I could as a player that honestly loves him."
