Former Nevada Basketball player and founder of a youth basketball program Matt Williams has been found innocent of allegations he had a sexual relationship with a high school student when he was her coach.

According to an Amateur Athletic Union spokesperson, the investigation by the AAU concluded in May that the allegations were not proven to be true, considering the lack of supporting evidence of her claims, and the credibility of the parties.

Williams was placed on leave from his national leadership role at Jam on It after a woman accused him of having a sexual relationship with her when she was a teenager.

The accusations by Ashlee Orndorff were published in a series of videos and posts on social media starting in mid-January.

Orndorff is a former standout basketball player who played for the University of Nevada, Reno.

In one of her videos that is made public online, she says her sexual relationship started with Williams when she was 16 years old.

The AAU submitted significant supporting evidence on his behalf, and statements showing that the claims were not true.

According to the AAU spokesperson, Williams is still in good standing with the AAU, and is still actively serving as Second Vice President.

No further action or investigation is being pursued.
