Two members of Oregon’s staff declined to press charges against an Arizona State fan that allegedly spit on the team, according to a report from The Oregonian.

Assistant coach Brian Fish and athletic trainer Clay Jamieson were both spit on after the game, according to the report, although Fish told the paper that the fans were aiming for Joseph Young.

The spitting was also apparently an issue at halftime as well. The problem, according to Altman, is that the team has to walk through a tunnel surrounded by students as they leave the court.

“A security issue having us walk through the students on the way out,” he said. “We were in a tough situation at half but that’s a poor security there. That’s not good.”
