TUCSON, Ariz. — Former NBA star Mike Bibby has been accused of sexual abuse and harassment.

According to the Arizona Republic , a female teacher at Shadow Mountain High School in Arizona -- where Bibby coaches basketball -- says Bibby grabbed her by the waist and pulled her into his car on school grounds in February 2017.

The teacher also says Bibby rubbed his genitals against her as she tried to push him away.

The teacher brought her allegations to the school about a week later.

Phoenix police are investigating the claims. Bibby's attorney denies the accusation.

As the basketball coach Shadow Mountain, Bibby has led the school to four straight state championships.

Bibby won an NCAA national championship with the Arizona Wildcats and played 14 seasons in the NBA with the Vancouver Grizzlies, the Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors, Atlanta Hawks, Washington Wizards, Miami Heat and New York Knicks.
