NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A former NBA player and current college coach accused of exposing himself on a public walking trail near Philadelphia has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.

Forty-seven-year-old Doug Overton, coach of Division II Lincoln University, entered the plea Wednesday in Montgomery County Court and was placed on probation. He must also undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation.

Overton was arrested April 30 after several witnesses reported seeing him expose himself to both men and women on the Cynwyd (KIN'-wood) Heritage Trail in Lower Merion Township, just outside the city. He said he was relieving himself while walking his dog.

Overton played 11 seasons in the NBA for eight teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics. He recently finished his first season as head coach at Lincoln, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Philadelphia.
