Travis Walton, a former Michigan State player and current G-league coach for the Los Angeles Clippers (on leave currently), issued a statement Tuesday denying all allegations from the Outside the Lines report that detonated last week.
Walton says he was never hired or fired by Michigan State. He also says he never physically assaulted a woman, and to the best of his knowledge the attack that has been alleged was never reported to Michigan State University.
Last week when the report emerged, Walton was placed on leave by the Clippers pending an investigation into the allegations against him.
The Los Angeles Clippers have placed Travis Walton, an assistant coach with team's G-League affiliate, on administrative leave "pending further investigation." Walton has emerged as part of the Michigan State basketball probe.

Both Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio have been under heavy fire for what was reported, but both have staunchly defended themselves and their programs since then.
