Jonathan Coachman responds to ESPN sexual harassment lawsuit and allegations against him

After news broke late last night that Jonathan Coachman was named in a sexual harassment lawsuit brought against both current and former ESPN employees, the newly signed WWE commentator took to Twitter to respond to the allegations.

Former ESPN employee Adrienne Lawrence filed a lawsuit on Monday in Connecticut’s United States District of Court alleging sexual discrimination and harassment against ESPN and named Coachman specifically in the lawsuit.

Coachman had the following to say on Twitter earlier this morning, claiming he is not part of the lawsuit despite his name being specifically noted in it.

As reported last night, WWE issued the following statement regarding the matter:

“We take these matters very seriously and are investigating.”
