Josh Pastner, a former player and coach at the University of Arizona, has been accused of sexual assault by an Oro Valley couple.

The pair filed a lawsuit in Pima County Superior Court on Thursday that says Pastner sexually assaulted the woman.

Pastner is currently the head basketball coach at Georgia Tech.

They accuse him of sexually assaulting the woman in a Houston hotel room on Feb. 9, 2016, the night before a Memphis basketball game against Houston. They also say Pastner threatened the woman if she didn’t stay silent.

Pastner's attorney, Scott Tompsett, said the accusations are not true.

"There was no sexual assault," he said via Twitter. "It is a lie."

There were more alleged incidents in 2016, between Feb. 14 and March 3, and again after Pastner took a new job at Georgia Tech in November and continued through December of that year.

The lawsuit asks for damages in medical expenses, general damages, punitive damages, the cost of the suit and any other relief deemed appropriate and demands a jury trial.

Pastner filed a lawsuit against the couple on Jan. 12, accusing them of "defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting and injurious falsehoods and attempts to blackmail and extort.”
