Kelley Currin, whose maiden name was Kelley Davies, said Curl had sexual relations with her for four years beginning in 1983, when she was 13 and he 33. Curl coached Tom Dolan to Olympic gold in the 1996 and 2000 Olympics, and was the American Swimming Coaches Association Coach of the Year in 1994. Read The Washington Post and see ABC News
