(CNN)Last week, Matt Schembechler, son of the celebrated University of Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler, came forward to detail experiences he said he had with former team doctor Robert Anderson. The younger Schembechler says he was 10 years old when Dr. Anderson molested him and conducted an invasive rectal exam during what was supposed to be a routine physical in 1969.

Matt Schembechler said that when he told his father -- who was in his first year as head coach -- Bo Schembechler responded by punching him in the chest. He said that he and his mother reported Anderson's behavior to athletic director Don Canham, who fired Anderson, but it is Matt Schembechler's understanding that his father had Anderson reinstated, CNN reported.
