New England Patriots' McDaniels offers support for Detroit Lions coach Patricia

New England Patriots' McDaniels offers support for Detroit Lions coach Patricia

According to court documents obtained by the Detroit Free Press, the witness list included a nurse, doctor, police detective, police officer and college friend of the alleged victim.

Additionally, because the Lions were following both MA and MI law, they were not allowed to ask Patricia about any felony or misdemeanor arrests that didn't lead to convictions.

It's been an eventful week for the Detroit Lions and head coach Matt Patricia.

This is all in response to a 1996 aggravated sexual assault indictment after an alleged assault in South Padre Island, Texas, on spring break, when Patricia was a 21-year-old student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

The Lions organization has said the incident did not show up on Patricia's "standard pre-employment background check" and that it is standing behind the 43-year-old first-time head coach. "I was falsely accused of something I didn't do". In fact, I can say that I am different person mentally than I was four years ago when I was still in college.

Wood did not disclose what questions the franchise asked Patricia other than saying that the answers he gave to their questions were truthful.

Asked if he had had consensual sex with the accuser, he replied: "I did nothing wrong and that's all I'm going to say on the matter".

In the meantime, Patricia is maintaining his innocence.

Patricia repeated that the incident did not come up in the interview process with the Lions. "I'm only in charge of what the Lions do and I want to do it the right way".

"As someone who was falsely accused of this very serious charge over 22 years ago, and never given the opportunity to defend myself and clear my name, I find it incredibly unfair, disappointing, and frustrating that this story would resurface now with the only objective being to damage my character and reputation", Patricia said in a statement issued late Wednesday by the team. Wood said the Lions had not employed that firm for their background check.

"Based upon everything we have learned, we believe and have accepted Coach Patricia's explanation and we will continue to support him", the joint statement said.

"Matt's always been a good friend of mine". Patricia's previous employer, the New England Patriots, didn't know either.

"I'm here to defend my honor and clear my name", Patricia read from a statement. He's always been a guy we've enjoyed working with.
