Back in 1996 before Peyton Manning entered the NFL he was involved in a sexual harassment lawsuit when one of the university’s female trainers claimed that Manning rubbed his testicles on her face.

she was examining Manning to see why Manning was having pain in one of his feet and was crouched behind him when “entirely unprovoked, Peyton Manning decided to pull down his shorts and sit on Dr. Naughright’s head and face.”

As Naughright described it in a deposition entered into the court record: “It was the gluteus maximus, the rectum, the testicles and the area in between the testicles. And all that was on my face when I pushed him up. … To get leverage, I took my head out to push him up and off.”

Today, The New York Daily News published court documents that show that Naughright claimed Tennessee officials asked her to blame her leave of absence on a made-up incident with a black player instead of the incident with Manning.

Even Peyton’s father, Archie Manning, seemed to try and push the “she dated a ton of black guys’ narrative.

Naughright received a $300,000 settlement from Tennessee in 1997 and also settled a defamation lawsuit with Manning in 2003.
