Colorado State players boycotted practice Thursday amid media reports that the school was set to fire coach Larry Eustachy, Sean Star of the Loveland Reporter-Herald.

Eustachy was placed on administrative leave over the weekend after the school initiated an investigation into the culture created in the program along with Eustachy’s conduct with the team.

NBC Sports reported earlier Thursday that the school was expected to part ways with Eustachy.

The decision is a result of a zero-tolerance policy instituted on Eustachy after a 2014 investigation into his treatment of players, according to the Denver Post.

Players had grown aggravated of learning about the developments within the athletic department from media, according to Star.

The Rams are 10-16 overall this season and 3-10 in the Mountain West Conference. Assistant coach Steve Barnes is currently the acting head coach for Colorado State. 

Colorado State is set to host San Jose State on Saturday.
