When will these coaches learn that you can’t go having relations and such with your student athletes???

Via Yahoo! Sports:

University of Texas women’s track coach Bev Kearney resigned Saturday and acknowledged in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman that she had an intimate relationship with a female athlete in her program in 2002. Kearney, who won six national championships since 1993, was placed on paid leave in November as university officials investigated unspecified issues within the program. In a statement released Saturday night, university officials said the relationship was first reported to the school in October and the school was taking measures to fire Kearney before she resigned.

Neither Kearney nor the university identified the former Texas athlete. Kearney told the newspaper it was a ”consensual intimate relationship” that began in July 2002 and ended later that year. Kearney didn’t immediately return a telephone message left at her home late Saturday night.
Patti Ohlendorf, Texas vice president for legal affairs, said school officials don’t believe Kearney had any similar relationships with other student athletes.

”Coach Kearney is a good person and has been very important to the university. However, she made this terrible mistake and used unacceptably poor judgment in having this relationship,” Ohlendorf said.

Very poor judgement.
