Former NBA player Mike Bibby is under police investigation after a teacher accused him of sexual assault and harassment, according to officials in the Phoenix school district where he now works as a high school coach.

The Paradise Valley Unified School District has acknowledged that Phoenix police have opened an investigation of the accusation and that the district previously began its own internal investigation.

The teacher requested a restraining order against Mike Bibby, which the court granted on February 22.

"I can say with pretty much certainty this alleged incident didn't happen and that will be shown down the road", he told the Arizona Republic.

Harris denied the allegations, saying Bibby "did not participate in a sexual assault of any way, shape or form".

Bibby played on Shadow Mountain's first state championship basketball team as a student in 1996. In the six years Bibby has been the school's coach, the team has won five state titles, and just wrapped its fourth straight crown on Saturday. She did not know him personally, she wrote.

At this point, the teacher alleged she could smell alcohol in Bibby's breath as he laid on top of her. He then followed her into the school building, after she had eventually managed to get out of his vehicle. She said she tried to push him away.

Former Sacramento Kings point guard Mike Bibby is under investigation for his role in an alleged sexual assault, and it doesn't look good for the former player. He retired from the National Basketball Association in 2012 and began coaching for Shadow Mountain as an assistant coach in 2013.

He allegedly told her that he had been drinking that day, adding that she was a 'beautiful and nice person'.

A few days after the incident, Bibby reportedly walked into the teacher's classroom uninvited. She told him he acted inappropriately and that she wasn't interested in him.

Bibby then asked the teacher if she was going to "tell" others about the allegations. She says she did tell the AD that in 2017, before filing the restraining order this week.

Kelbaugh wrote that the district conducts "thorough background investigations for all employees and volunteers, including a notarized criminal affidavit, background check and fingerprint clearance".
