"Congressman Jordan never saw any abuse, never heard about any abuse, and never had any abuse reported to him during his time as a coach at Ohio State", a Jordan spokesman told CBS News.

"If what is alleged is true, the victims deserve a full investigation and justice".

In addition to stating that he had no knowledge of any reports of abuse during his time as a coach, Jordan has, as noted, said that he's never been contacted about these charges. Jordan, who was the assistant coach from 1986 to 1994, may have covered up the incidents, according to the reports.

U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, a former standout college wrestler at the University of Wisconsin and later a coach at Ohio State, knew when he was at the university that the doctor was groping male wrestlers, said ex-wrestlers Mike DiSabato and Dunyasha Yetts.

But investigators counter Jordan, telling the Columbus Dispatch they've contacted Jordan and got no response.

Wrestlers who were on the team at the time, however, are calling Jordan a liar.

"I considered Jim Jordan a friend", Mike DiSabato, a former wrestler who said he was abused by Strauss, told NBC.

DiSabato said he had forwarded Jordan a screenshot of a message he saw from former Ohio State football player Matt Finkes - whom he identified as Jordan's cousin.

A spokesman for Ryan told CNBC that "these are serious allegations and issues".

A law firm representing Ohio State University says an investigative team unsuccessfully sought an interview with an Ohio congressman about sex abuse allegations at the university two decades ago.

Dr. Strauss's inappropriate touching of athletes was open knowledge, he said, and he remembered talking about it with Mr. Jordan on road trips, in the sauna and after practices.

In June, DiSabato wrote in an email to an attorney appointed as legal counsel to Ohio State, "Strauss sexually assaulted male athletes in at least fifteen varsity sports during his employment at OSU from 1978 through 1998". In a video shared with NBC, former head wrestling coach Russ Hellickson said he confronted Strauss and told school officials. He said Strauss tried to pull down his wrestling shorts when Yetts visited him about a thumb injury.

"They went in and talked to Strauss".

"What happened drove me out of the sport", Dailey told NBC.

Porter Wright hired Seattle-based Perkins Coie (coo-ey) to investigate the allegations against the late Richard Strauss.
