Two Justice Department officials told The Associate Press that Trevor Graham, former coach of Olympian track star Marion Jones and the infamous sprinter Justin Gatlin, is expected to be charged with obstructing a federal investigation on steroids in sports by making false statements to authorites.

Graham may have lied in the three-year probe about his knowledge of athletes' connection to the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO), an organization that supplied steroids while under the auspices of a supplement company.

Several of Graham's elite athletes already have tested positive for performance enhancing substances. One of those athletes is Gatlin, who is serving a seven-year ban. Tim Montgomery, although he never tested positive for steroid use, is serving a two-year ban from his sport of track and field.

The coach already has been dropped from his contract with Nike annd the U.S. Olympic Committee said he is no longer welcome at its training facilities.

Graham continues to maintain that he never supplied banned substances to his athletes.
