Former Michigan gymnast says doctor assaulted him in 1969
The university has said it believes he assaulted athletes, and it wants to compensate victims outside court. Black said he knew teammates as well as other Michigan athletes were assaulted. No small talk, no nothing.In 1969, his first year at Michigan, Black said he tried to express his concern to gymnastics coach Newt Loken as they sat alone on a bench. Coach Loken's an older gentleman, terrific communicator, terrific recruiter, terrific coach. Always gabby but that shut him up.Loken had a very wry, very Cheshire Cat smile, Black said.
