Southern California community college coach "harassed after Title IX suit"


[She] sued the college and agreed to a $250,000 settlement in 2012. As part of the pact, two negative evaluations of [her] contrived by [the athletic director]— who subsequently was put on administrative leave and resigned after pornography was reportedly discovered on his work computer — were rescinded and the college promised to conduct “sensitivity and sexual harassment training to all athletic department staff in conjunction with a mandatory staff meeting.”

[She] thought maybe her fight for equality was over. But, she alleges, violation after violation, humiliation after humiliation, year after year, made her professional life miserable. So, she fought back — again.


“We have an all-Black team, [she] is trying to criminalize these guys and I’m not going to allow that to happen,” [the men's coach] said. “She’s using code words. ‘Violently.’ ‘I’m afraid for my safety.’ Those are code words.”
