The University of South Carolina’s Women’s Basketball Coach, Dawn Staley, has filed a lawsuit against University of Missouri Athletic Director, Jim Sterk.
The document cites Sterk’s interview with KTGR following Mizzou’s trip to South Carolina. Sterk allegedly commented “It wasn’t a great atmosphere. It was really kind of unhealthy if you will. We had players spit on, and called the N-Word, and things like that. It was not a good environment and unfortunately, I think Coach Staley promoted that kind of atmosphere, and it’s unfortunate that she felt she had to do that.”
In the documents, Staley accused Sterk of “promoting and suggesting veracity in his patently false allegations.”
Staley is asking for 75 thousand dollars in the case.
