Former Michigan State University head football coach and athletic director George Perles denies he ever worked to cover up sexual assault allegations against Larry Nassar in 1992.

That’s according to Pat Perles, George’s son.

“As my mom says, the truth is its own defense. I don’t need to defend ourselves. The truth will come out. And that’s basically their attitude,” Pat Perles said.
