The former coach of tainted runners Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery had not talked to reporters about doping since he identified himself as the person who had anonymously sent to antidoping authorities a syringe with an undetectable steroid called “the clear”.

Graham sought out the paper, which first had identified him as a doping suspect. He was convicted of making false statements to a federal agent and served a year of home confinement.

He is still barred for life by USA Track and Field, but is considering appealing that penalty.
