We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Yesterday, USC released a report that Trojans defensive back Josh Shaw had sprained both of his ankles while rescuing his 7-year-old nephew at a family party Saturday night. This morning, however, head coach Steve Sarkisian said that he had received reports disputing Shaw's account.

The presser is below. At about 5:00, Sarkisian is asked about Shaw's story.

Sarkisian first said that Shaw is a "good person," but also said the team has received multiple phone calls contradicting Shaw's story. Sarkisian declined to say who the callers were. The incident will be investigated further, he said.
