Two former top administrators say they weren’t aware of allegations of sexual abuse by an Ohio State University doctor when they worked there in the 1990s.

Former Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee and former vice president of human resources Linda Tom tell The Columbus Dispatch they don’t remember receiving any complaints about the now-dead doctor, Richard Strauss.

He worked there for two decades as a member of the faculty and medical staff and a team doctor before retiring in 1998. Ohio State says allegations of sexual misconduct by Strauss have been raised by former athletes from 14 sports and other people since such allegations were first brought forward months ago.

An independent investigation is underway about those claims and about whether the university knew of concerns about Strauss.
