*So did you hear the one about a white Notre Dame academic coach getting fired because she coerced (black) athletes into having sex with her daughter?
Yes, you read that correctly. The sordid tale was brought to light after an internal investigation by the school.
The six-page report says the unnamed academic coach violated the university’s “values” and its “discrimination harassment policy.”
The report notes an accusation made by an African-American student who said they were pressed into having sex with the coach’s daughter, who is white. It also references a player on the famed football team who apparently also worked with the academic coach and dated her daughter, reports the NY Daily News.
On Friday, one of the students sued the school, arguing the tutor orchestrated “sexually and racially motivated” trysts with her daughter by including condoms, transportation and hotel rooms for academic favors.
“She was exploiting African-American males,” said lawyer Peter J. Agostino, who is representing the unnamed student. “He was invited to the family’s private home to facilitate the relationship.”
The student started at Notre Dame on an academic scholarship in the fall of 2014, according to his attorney.
The alleged five-month relationship did not start until he sought tutoring lessons during this year’s spring semester, according to the lawsuit.
Those lessons quickly escalated to out-of-state sexual liaisons between her daughter, who was also at the school, and the student.
“She was encouraging it,” said the man’s other lawyer, Michael Misch. “The mom sought him out and promoted the relationship by providing hotel rooms and condoms.”
The academic coach would later interrogate him about the “nature, frequency, and quality of the sexual activities” they had, the lawsuit claims, badgering him with “racially-charged comments about his sexual prowess and genitalia,” the suit alleges.
The student’s attorneys have accused the university of fostering a “sexually abusive and hostile educational environment.”
On Saturday, Notre Dame issued a statement to the South Bend Tribune:
“The allegations against the University of Notre Dame in the complaint are unfounded,” university spokesman Paul Browne said. “As are gratuitous and unfounded references to ‘student athletes’—an allegation that is nothing more than a cynical attempt to attract publicity.”
On Sunday, however the Daily News acquired a six-page, internal school report that found the academic coach, who has been fired, had violated the university’s “values” and its “discrimination harassment policy.”
