Mike Bibby

Former NBA star Mike Bibby is being investigated for allegations of sexual abuse and harassment by a teacher at a Phoenix high school where he now coaches.

According to the Arizona Republic, a Phoenix court granted a teacher at Shadow Mountain High School was granted a restraining order last week. According to an order obtained by the newspaper, she accused that Bibby "grabbed her by the waist and pulled her into his car on school grounds, rubbing his genitals against her and groping her.

Bibby’s attorney has vehemently denied the allegations.

"Michael Bibby did not participate in a sexual assault of any way, shape or form that was alleged by this lady two years ago,” Donald Harris said on his client’s behalf, according to SI.com.

Bibby, who played 14 NBA seasons from 1998-2012, serves as head coach for the Shadow Mountain High School basketball team since 2013.
