Chatman pokey relationship sexual

15-Nov-2016 19:36

Pokey Chatman, the coach of the LSU women’s basketball team, resigned abruptly yesterday amid rumors that the reason for this surprising turn of events is an “inappropriate” relationship with one of the players on her team.Though the reports of this relationship are unconfirmed as yet, it is difficult to imagine many other reasons for a young successful rising star African-American coach with a team ranked in the top 10 to leave suddenly for “other career opportunities.” I mean, she isn’t even going to see them through the tournament.Sexual abuse and family dysfunction, she says, led to three suicide attempts between ages 10 and 15.But when the rookie center from the University of Texas takes the floor for the Sky's season opener against the Connecticut Sun on Saturday, she will be doing it because she has found reasons to love basketball — and herself — again.She’s received two to three calls every week since then, she says, while she typically receives that number in a month.“I think the reason is that anytime you talk about lesbian issues in sports, it’s been such a silent topic, so if a discussion is not held upfront about the issues, it remains a silent fear and it can be very detrimental to women’s sports," Carroll says.

Last month's resignation of Louisiana State University's women's basketball coach amid allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct with her players has once again raised an issue that has long dogged women's sports: the perceived prevalence of lesbian coaches.

Pamela Mc Gee did, and Boyette always had resented her for it.

Boyette was facing a bigger battle: a battle for her life.

Aunt Trisha Stafford-Odom played in the WNBA and coached in college, and cousin Jarron Gilbert was a third-round NFL draft pick of the Bears in 2009. Kevin Stafford, and Pam Mc Gee married in 1994, and Imani was born that same year. What followed was a bitter, public custody battle over Imani that made headlines in part because Mc Gee's fight was seen as a trailblazing case for working women.
