HARRISBURG -- The University of Tennessee at Martin is saying little about a claim that one of its current football coaches disobeyed orders last year at Juniata College and allowed accused child molester Jerry Sandusky to continue to work with Juniata's players and coaches.
CBS 21 News Sports Director Jason Bristol was first to report that Sandusky was actively involved with the Juniata program, despite failing a background check and the school repeatedly telling former head coach Carmen Felus, now UT Martin's co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach, that Sandusky should not be around the team.
UT Martin athletics director Phil Dane told Bristol on Wednesday that "we have looked into the matter as deeply as we feel necessary; and (Felus) has done nothing to affect his employment status here at UT Martin."
Dane said he would offer no other comment.
Felus, a native of Lilly, Pa., had not returned numerous phone calls and emails.
He resigned in March 2011 to go to UT Martin, located in Martin, Tennessee, and a member of the Ohio Valley Conference; and finished with a record of 1-19 in two seasons at Juniata.
Juniata College spokesperson John Wall told CBS 21 News on Monday that senior leadership gave Felus "three distinct orders" that Sandusky was not to be associated with the program.
