Memphis YMCA: No record of complaints vs. Dodd

Robert "Bobby" Dodd Robert "Bobby" Dodd

(AP) - The YMCA of Memphis and the mid-South says officials have no record or recollections of any complaints against ex-Amateur Athletic Union President Robert "Bobby" Dodd during the time he worked there before leaving in 1992 to work with the AAU full-time.

YMCA officials said in a statement first sent Tuesday to The Commercial Appeal they take the matter "very seriously" and are continuing an internal investigation.

The YMCA confirms Dodd worked there from the 1980s until 1992. The statement notes background and reference checks, screening and training of all staff and volunteers have been required for at least 20 years.

ESPN reported Friday two former basketball players have accused Dodd of molesting them as children. The AAU has confirmed that it is investigating the claims, which date to the 1980s.
