Jamie Naughright, a former athletic trainer at the University of Tennessee who accused Peyton Manning of sexual harassment, spoke to CBS News' Inside Edition Monday about the allegations she's made against Manning.

Naughright said that Manning exposed himself to her in 1996, placing his genitals on her face while she was examining Manning for an apparent foot injury.

“I felt something on my face and Peyton had pulled his shorts down and sat his anus and his testicles on my face,” Naughright told Inside Edition, in what was her first TV interview.

In a deposition video from 2003, which was obtained by Inside Edition, Manning said he was trying to moon a friend – who was also in the room with Naughright – and that Naughright continued the examination of the bottom half of his foot after the incident.

Manning's attorney also provided a statement to CBS after Naughright's recent allegations, which said in part:

"When her claims were first investigated 21 years ago, she told a very different story. Her current account was invented several years later in connection with her first of several groundless litigations against Peyton. Most recently, she left Peyton’s mother a vulgar and extremely disturbing voicemail. Ms. Naughright should stop this abusive behavior.”

The full story from Inside Edition can be seen on their website.

A timeline of the case

The Associated Press released a report in 1998 that documented Naughright enduring "a long list of slights, affronts, embarrassments and, possibly, threats within the Volunteer athletic complex dating to 1990."

She ended up reaching a $300,000 settlement with the school.

A few years later in 2002, she filed a defamation case against Manning, claiming the Super Bowl winning quarterback and his father belittled her in an autobiography published by the younger Manning. This is where the deposition video comes from.

The New York Post said the case eventually reached a settlement.

In 2016, the case resurfaced again when a Title IX lawsuit was filed against the University of Tennessee.

Manning has repeatedly denied Naughright's claims, and police never investigated, ESPN said.
