The founder of the Jam On It youth basketball programs is on administrative leave from the organization, until an investigation into allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a former player is completed.

The Amateur Athletic Union Investigation comes after a public post to social media were shared various news outlets, including Channel 2 News and the Reno-Gazette Journal, by Ashlee Orndorff in January. 

In an exclusive interview with the RGJ Williams denied the allegation that he had a sexual relationship with Orndorff while she was still in high school. He said the two had a consensual relationship after she went to college. In 2002 the two had a child that was put up for adoption. At the time, Williams was 33 and Orndorff 20.

"In light of recent allegations, the AAU national officer met with Matt Williams, AAU officer, event operator and leader in youth sports," wrote Roger Goudy, president of the AAU, in an email to the organization's leaders according to the RGJ report.

"As a result, Mr. Williams has volunteered to be on administrative leave until the review process has been completed."
