Problems extend beyond NMSU men’s basketball program, according to documents obtained by ESPN


LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KVIA) -- Problems that have impacted the NMSU Men's Basketball program have now spread to the women's team following revelations in documents obtained by ESPN.

According to ESPN, an official on the men's team was found to have sexually harassed a student in the past year.

There are three other Title IX investigations in the arena that houses the athletic offices.

ESPN reports a Title IX investigator found last year that George Ross Jr., the director of operations for women's basketball, had sexually harassed a student who was working as a janitor in the arena.

Ross was forbidden from speaking to the student and forced to review basic staff conduct rules by a Title IX deputy director.

Ross continues to work with the women's team, according to ESPN, and did not respond to efforts by network to reach him directly by email and phone.

ABC-7 has requested access to those records.
