(New York) -- Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o says he briefly lied about his online girlfriend after discovering she didn't exist. 

Te'o says in an interview with Katie Couric to air on her syndicated show Thursday that he didn't lie about the hoax until December, believing the woman he had considered to be his girlfriend had died of cancer.

Te'o maintains he had no part in creating the hoax. A segment of the interview was shown on Wednesday's "Good Morning America" program that airs on ABC.
