Earlier this week, USA Today published a story in which two women said that former LSU running back Derrius Guice, who was recently released by the Washington football team following domestic violence allegations, sexually assaulted them when they were freshmen at LSU.
There was a passage where one of the accuser’s former boyfriend said the following:
The former boyfriend redshirted his freshman year and said he steered clear of Guice because “I probably would have lost my (expletive) on him.” He said LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron brought up the subject of his then-girlfriend and Guice about a year after the alleged assault, telling the athlete he shouldn’t be bothered by it.
“(Orgeron) said, ‘Everybody’s girlfriend sleeps with other people,’ ” the former player told USA TODAY.
On Twitter, Orgeron has denied that this is what he said in the interaction:

We will monitor if the former player ultimately comes forward and rebuts this account from Coach Orgeron.
