George Washington University said it is bringing in outside counsel as part of an investigation into allegations against men’s basketball coach Mike Lonergan.

The school said in a statement released by a spokesman Thursday night that it is “undertaking a Title IX review” but that “some of the reported allegations go beyond the scope of Title IX.”

The statement comes in response to a story posted earlier Thursday on www.washingtonpost.com that says former GW players — quoted anonymously — complained about Lonergan’s behavior.

Lonergan told The Washington Post that “these types of accusations” were previously investigated by the school “and found to be groundless.”

Lonergan led GW to the National Invitation Tournament championship last season.
