That statement came hours after the Washington Post published a story of a California woman who worked for Moon and his sports marketing firm filing a sexual-harassment lawsuit. The suit alleges the former Seahawks and long-time NFL star and University of Washington Rose Bowl quarterback required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips. Her suit also alleges sexual battery.

Moon was at team headquarters Wednesday afternoon about a half hour before the Post’s story went public, attending press conferences by coach Pete Carroll, linebacker Bobby Wagner and wide receiver Doug Baldwin.

Moon, 61, is in his 14th season as the team’s radio analyst. The 17-year NFL veteran played for the Seahawks in 1997 and ‘98. He retired in 2000 at age 44.
