There really isn’t a dull moment at the University of Louisville, is there? After this morning’s news that the UofL Board of Trustees is suing former President James Ramsey for misusing university funds, there’s even more drama to share. According to WDRB, former UofL associate athletic director Kimberly Maffet is suing UofL for firing her for health issues and reporting “wrongful conduct” including a UofL coach having an affair with a co-employee.
Now, the coach isn’t named, only listed in the lawsuit as “Coach 3,” but Maffet claims reporting the relationship, which violated the university’s sexual harassment policy, is part of the reason she was let go earlier back in February. She also reported a different coach verbally abusing employees. According to Maffet, that behavior was not only typical, but continuously covered up by the department.
Maffet claims her attempts to report the violation “were rebuffed” and other employees “attempted to hide” the information. […]
Maffet described the athletics department as having a “culture of misogynism, sexism, lying, cover-up, and bullying in the Athletic Department,” according to the suit.
