After the Daily News story broke, Johnson says he reached out to Manning expressing his willingness to talk to a reporter off the record. Now a law enforcement officer, Johnson says he was reticent to be identified because of his occasional role as an undercover investigator. Johnson, a senior linebacker and special teams player in , says he entered the training room and saw Manning leaning with one elbow on a training table while Naughright, then an assistant trainer, examined his foot from behind.
He says hey to Saxon and pulls down the back of his shorts, and I saw one butt cheek, and then he pulled his pants up. Thought nothing of it. That aligns with the description of the incident that Naughright provided in a affadavit , filed as part of an employment discrimination complaint she lodged against the University of Tennessee. The complaint involved more than two dozen allegations of sexual discrimination or harassment, including the training-room incident.
Manning has consistently denied that any contact took place. Johnson says he saw no physical contact between Manning and Naughright while he was present. They asked if Peyton mooned somebody. Next thing I know, Peyton is banned from the chow hall. Even so, Manning initially defended himself, in part, by shifting the spotlight to Naughright.

His first overseas deployment came in The graying history teacher and prep school cross country coach stood on the porch of his single-story home on the northern edge of Jackson, Miss.

Fulmer could not recall having a conversation with Johnson in about the incident. Several student athletes deposed for the suit stated they had never observed Naughright behave unprofessionally during her time at UT. If you ask anyone who dealt with her at that time, you will probably hear the same thing.
They do, however, provide necessary context to the public discussion of a case that, since the Daily News article went viral, has been lacking it. Vulgar Mouth Whited. Her married name was Whited. Shaken by the contents of the book and its subsequent proliferation among her colleagues, Naughright asserted in the document that her performance suffered and led to her leaving Florida Southern.

And the patients seemed to like her very much. That was a popular sentiment among those who had worked with Naughright. While some of those interviewed on and off the record had issues with her personal demeanor, most agreed she was a highly capable athletic trainer and doctor with a tremendous reputation among patients. As for the legal battle with Manning, Padgett says it was never an issue in their professional relationship.
In Naughright filed a lawsuit in New York State against the fashion deer Donna Karan after allegedly suffering injury during physical therapy with a trainer whom Karan had recommended. That suit was dismissed. The same year Naughright filed suit in Florida against a Lakeland restaurant and catering company, Deli Delicacies, claiming physical injuries as the result of slip outside the store.
Reached at her home in Lakeland, the former owner, Gretchen Anglero said she had been friends with Naughright leading up to the suit and had advised her on the challenges of her fledgling yoga business. That case was settled out of court for undisclosed terms, according to Polk County records. The content and language of the Manning voic was similar to that used by a woman claiming to be Naughright who for years phoned the sports desk at the Knoxville News Sentinel with accusations regarding Peyton Manning and Philip Fulmer and assertions that the newspaper had failed to adequately cover the training-room incident.
John Adams, a columnist for the newspaper, wrote a story outlining the content and frequency of those calls. It was mainly about Manning and our failure to uncover the story, while in fact we covered this thing extensively when it happened. The media organization vetted the source and was satisfied the woman on the other end of the phone was Naughright. Tom Stokes, a radio producer, received a call this month from a woman identifying herself as Naughright who repeats some of the allegations in the Manning voic.
Stokes later released an edited audio of that call. The wife of Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins is facing a domestic violence charge after an alleged incident earlier this month.
