Georgia Tech basketball coach Josh Pastner is facing very serious and troubling allegations.
On Thursday evening, reports surfaced that the Yellow Jackets head coach has been accused of sexually assaulting and then threatening a woman in a lawsuit that was filed in Pima County, Arizona.
According to the alleged victim, Jennifer Pendley, Paster masturbated in front of her in a hotel room despite her repeated requests for him to stop. Eventually, the head coach ejaculated on her shirt, before threatening her and telling her not to say a word before he left the room.
The entire allegations are very troubling and could special trouble for the Georgia Tech coach.

The lawsuit was filed by Ron Bell, a former close friend of Pastner.
Last month, Pastner filed a defamation lawsuit in response to these allegations.
“I am disgusted and devastated by the actions of two individuals to whom I showed compassion,” Pastner said. “My family and I are victims of fraud and extortion and the extent to which these individuals have gone to harm us is truly unfathomable.
“I absolutely and unequivocally never assaulted or harassed Ms. Pendley and I am truly sickened by these false claims. Upon learning of the allegations, I immediately informed law enforcement and officials at Georgia Tech.”
There is obviously plenty more of this story that needs to come to light, so we will keep you updated on the situation as more information becomes available.
