  1. Old sex assault charges against Vance Joseph

    Bengals head coach candidate Vance Joseph faced sex assault allegations in Colorado

    One of the candidates reportedly being considered to replace Marvin Lewis faced sexual assault allegations more than 15 years ago.

    Vance Joseph, fired Monday by the Denver Broncos after back-to-back losing seasons, will be interviewed by the Bengals on Thursday and Friday, according to reports.

    The sexual assault allegations are from his time at the University of Colorado working as an assistant coach.

    Joseph was disciplined by the school for having inappropriate sexual relationships with two female athletic trainers in 2003, which qualified as sexual harassment under CU policy, as reported by USA TODAY. He served a suspension from his coaching duties in 2004, then left for a job at Bowling Green.

    Joseph later worked for the NFL's Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Bengals and Miami Dolphins before taking the job in Denver.

    The trainers said he crawled into their beds naked while they were sleeping and touched them, according to a police report.


    Joseph was never interviewed by law enforcement or charged with a crime. Neither woman pressed charges.

    "That was resolved a long time ago. For myself, for my family, for the Denver Broncos, I’m disappointed and embarrassed," Joseph wrote in a statement published by the Denver Post after he was hired as the Broncos' head coach in January 2017. "I was a young guy and it showed to my immaturity and irresponsibility in my life when I was younger. But I’ve grown so much and that’s why I’m disappointed because I’ve grown so much as a person, as a coach, as a father, as a husband."

    Joseph, now 46, was in his early 30s at the time the accusations were made.

    Joseph worked for the Bengals as defensive backs coach in 2014 and 2015. In January 2017, after he was hired as the Broncos' head coach, the Boulder Daily Camera published information about the sexual assault allegations based on police reports.

    The Broncos said they investigated the allegations prior to hiring Joseph.

    The Bengals did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    He grew a lot between his early 30s and now?

    He and I are about the same age. I guess I knew in my early 30s it wasn't okay to crawl uninvited into sleeping women's beds whilst naked and touch them.

    Creepy.

    "Can you show us where he touched you using this Andy Dalton action figure?"
