USC football coach Steve Sarkisian said that USC is getting phone calls this morning that contradict Josh Shaw's story about saving his nephew from drowning. Sarkisian said USC will investigate. Shaw was not available at morning practice.

According to sources, USC was contacted by at least one source and told Josh Shaw's injury did not involve saving his nephew from a swimming pool and may not have even occurred in Palmdale.

USC is investigating these claims. Sources said USC was told the incident happened in Los Angeles and Shaw's family was not involved.
