SOUTH BEND, Ind. (Nov. 2, 2015) — A University of Notre Dame official says the school has fired an academic coach after a student complained the woman coerced him into having unwelcome sexual encounters with her daughter.

The firing occurred two weeks before the student’s attorneys filed a lawsuit Friday against the coach and university. The student, coach and her daughter, a Notre Dame employee who attends a nearby school, are not named in the lawsuit.

In a statement Monday to The Associated Press, university spokesman Paul Browne denied allegations listed in the lawsuit that university administrators knew or should have known that the academic coach, who is white, was targeting black students. It says black members of Notre Dame’s football and basketball teams also were targeted, a claim Browne says is untrue.
