Former coach: no memory of Perles cover-up

A former Michigan State University field hockey coach says she has no memory of George Perles allegedly covering up a rape by Larry Nassar.

In a lawsuit filed earlier this month, former MSU field hockey player Erika Davis claims she was assaulted by Nassar in 1992, and reported the rape to her coach Martha Ludwig.

The lawsuit claims Ludwig told then-Athletic Director George Perles and he squashed her accusations.

But Ludwig tells Michigan Radio that she does not remember the situation and denies ever knowing Nassar.

Michigan State says it is investigating the allegation.
