COLUMBUS (AP) - A congressman who coached wrestling at Ohio State University has been interviewed by the law firm investigating allegations that a now-dead team doctor sexually abused male athletes there decades ago.
The spokesman for Republican Rep. Jim Jordan says the congressman spoke Monday with the firm looking into allegations against Dr. Richard Strauss and how the school responded to any complaints about Strauss.
Jordan has publicly said he was never aware of abuse when he was an assistant coach from 1987 to 1995. Spokesman Ian Fury says Jordan told the investigators the same thing.
Jordan has repeatedly denied some former wrestlers' claims that he knew they were inappropriately groped by Strauss.
Jordan has said he'll cooperate with the investigators.
Ohio State says the allegations involve athletes from 14 sports. Strauss killed himself in 2005.
