As previously noted, Jonathan Coachman was mentioned in a sexual harassment lawsuit against ESPN by former anchor and legal analyst Adrienne Lawrence.
Coachman issued the following statement on Twitter regarding accusations made against him in the lawsuit:
"I will address this only once because I am seething today. In 21 years of being a PROFESSIONAL I have never been more offended in my life. I my 9 years I can count on one hand the amount of times I interacted with anyone other than a co-anchor. To allow someone to spread vicious lies and flat out fabrications is not ok and itís time someone stood up for themselves. @jemelehill addressed her lie last night. I am not a part of this lawsuit because I have never done anything wrong. My reputation speaks for itself and anyone that has ever worked with me will back that up. I am also offended that someone can dangerously throw peoples names into something for the clear attempt at getting headlines. This the only time I will address this because I am not a part of this lawsuit. My heart goes out to anyone falsely accused of anything. Trust me it doesnít feel good. But most of you have been incredible and supportive. Onward and upward."
