Bev Kearney, a highly successful women's track coach at the University of Texas at Austin, has filed complaints alleging gender and racial discrimination in her ouster, The Dallas Morning News  reported. Kearney resigned under pressure in December after disclosing that she had a relationship with an athlete in her program in 2002. The complaints were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Texas Workforce Commission. Supporters of Kearney have argued that she is being held to a higher standard than are male coaches. While the university recently announced it was studying policies about coaches and their relationships with students, it did not seek the resignation of an assistant football coach  who admitted that he had a one-night-stand with a student athletic trainer four years ago.
