Former UF quarterback Chris Leak resigned as head coach at Edgewater High on Monday for unclear reasons.
Now, Orlando police have shed more light on Leak’s departure.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Leak is under investigation for an alleged sexual assault of a 16-year-old female student.
The Sentinel has the alleged details of the incident:
The alleged incident on Sept. 5 was reported Monday. It reportedly occurred on Sept. 5 in the athletic trainer office near the football field, according to an investigative report.
Leak allegedly asked the girl to give him a massage. He came out from the shower wearing only a towel, the report said. The girl told detectives that she massaged his back legs and he asked her to massage the front of his legs, the report said.
According to the report, the girl told detectives Leak then pulled her hands up to touch his genitals. She told police her hand grazed his genitals a few times, according to the report. The girl then left. He called her and eventually bought the girl some food before taking her home, the report said.
She later told a friend and Leak gave the friend $100, according to the report. Police said the girl was “very upset” while describing the incident.
Leak has not issued a statement, and a spokesperson for the State Attorney’s office said it hadn’t received a report from authorities.
Leak was formerly a Gators assistant coach under Will Muschamp, but is most well-known for helping lead UF to a 41-14 win over Ohio State in the 2007 BCS National Championship game.
