The troubles of Lions head coach Matt Patricia might not be over.
When Patricia visited South Padre Island in Texas a little more than 22 years ago, he was indicted by a grand jury on one count of aggravated sexual assault. At the time, he was a 21-year-old football player at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in upstate New York.
The in-depth story was reported by The Detroit News.
However, a new report from The Detroit News claims that South Padre officials are trying to conceal new records related to the case.

According to The Detroit News, the victim did not respond to multiple requests for comment. According to court records, she ultimately did not testify in the case.
Patricia's lawyer called the accusation a "fabrication."
After the first story was released by the Detroit News, Patricia said in a press conference he was innocent of the charges and falsely accused.
The NFL also decided that neither the Lions nor Patricia would be punished for not letting his arrest be known, according to reports.
The Cowboys will host the Lions on Sunday, Sept. 30.
