The Morning After: What Happens Next in the Story of Deposed Utah Coach Greg Winslow and the Generation-Old and Unraveling USA Swimming Sex Abuse Scandals

Arizona State University spokesperson Teri Shafer just issued the following statement to our Tim Joyce:

“The Arizona State University Police Department conducted a thorough investigation of Greg Winslow on two alleged counts of sexual abuse of a minor that occurred from mid-2006 to mid-2007. Winslow, current University of Utah swimming coach and former ASU assistant coach for swimming and diving from 2003-2007, is accused of allegedly kissing and fondling a female swimmer while employed as head coach for a swimming club that was not, and is not, affiliated with ASU. The alleged victim was a member of a that club, and the alleged incidents occurred at an ASU swimming facility rented by the club. The victim in the case was a teenager at the time and was not, and has never been, a student at the university. The ASU Police Department recently filed a comprehensive report with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, which is currently reviewing the case. For more information, please contact the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.

“We were not aware of the incident until the ASU Police were notified. We fully cooperated with their investigation. The ASU Police contacted the University of Utah Police in the conduct of their investigation. No other contact was made.”

In the department of distraction and irrelevance, you’ve gotta love the line that “victim … was not, and has never been a student at the university.” As if that mattered with an act by ASU personnel at an ASU facility.
