MN: Allegation ends coach’s career

THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR walked onto the field unannounced, wearing jeans and sandals, and _____ ______ knew in that moment that something was terribly wrong. Nobody interrupted his football practices at Minnesota State Mankato without advance notice and permission. His success as head coach was based on maintaining total control; each practice was scripted to the minute. He believed small disruptions in preparation became big problems during games, so he sometimes asked his players to recite a motto: No mistakes. No distractions. No surprises.

Now, on Aug. 17, 2012, his life was about to become the story of all three. Full Article

    I wish every news station in the country would pick up this story and air it, that every paper would run it in print and online. If this guy lost everything because of a false accusation like this, then how do they expect anyone else to ever recover? I know we can, but it’s not easy. But this is proof that life after even just a false accusation is never the same again, so much more so for those of us who were actually convicted. I personally believe he shouldn’t just sue the university, but also the person who reported it when he was told to do so if it were “sexually violent” and the district attorney who chose to pursue this. And since it sounds like he’s that good a coach, I pray that he gets an offer soon…I know of a few teams that could use a coach like that, happy kids and all!
