The former head coach of the University of Memphis Tigers basketball team is speaking out after an Arizona woman claimed he sexually assaulted her.
She said he assaulted her in a Houston hotel room back in 2016. He was the coach at the U of M during this time.
"Zero, Zero, Zero," Pastner said after his game Thursday night. "It is disgusting."
Pastner's attorney said the allegations are a lie, and Pastner never acted inappropriately with the woman.
