3 former USM coaches awarded $1.2M
Published: June 29,2012
JACKSON — The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear the University of Southern Mississippi’s appeal of a $1.2 million award to three former soccer coaches.
The case is among dozens the Supreme Court will consider during its July-August term. It will not hear oral arguments in the case.
Former head coach John Vincent and two assistants, John Mollaghan and Ged O’Connor, sued in November 2000 after they were fired, claiming sexual harassment, sexual discrimination and lack of due process.
The lawsuit named the university, former USM president Horace Fleming and two current athletic department employees, athletic director Richard Giannini and senior women’s administrator Sonya Varnell, as defendants.
