Talking to or looking at a female these days is classified as sexual harassment

It's still a head-scratcher why Tanner interviewed and got used by this chump.

Whether RT offered the job is really irrelevant. My point is that he never should have interviewed RRod. That would have been an awful hire in so many respects, and the whole controversy over whether an offer was made illustrates why the interview itself was a bad idea.

RR is irrelevant. I doubt many people remember Tanner "interviewing" him.

So the lady with the complaint refused to cooperate but the school canned the coach anyway. This looks like a case of wrongful termination. Has the school ever heard of due process rights?

Default Re: Arizona has fired Rich Rod

Supposedly, Tanner and RichRod have the same agent and it was regarded as a courtesy interview to help RichRod and the agent out - interest usually means more $. And RichRod's position is stronger if he can say that an actual offer was made.

If I have to believe RichRod or Tanner, I go with Tanner. Especially if there is some substance to the latest allegations - RichRod always seemed like a tool anyways.

Apparently they made the decision to fire him before the bowl game. It wasn't for sexual harassment. They'll pay him his $.

Not quite, the alleged would not cooperate with the investigation so the investigation could not substantiate her claims and had to drop that case. It doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. There is also suspicion that she may not be the only alleged victim. The investigation found he had had an affair with a person not affiliated with the University. They cited a concern of culture in the program as reason for the firing. If these allegations come to light, look for AZ to go back after him as a “for cause” firing later.

That's what I understood. You don't get fired from your job for one off-color comment or looking at someone. As a man and a father of daughters, I hate it when people assume that the alleged victim is making it up. Maybe she is, but fortunately there's a judicial system that can help clear it up. And what it sounds like to me is that Arizona started looking into the program more when the allegations were made and realized that, maybe not in the sexual harassment department, things were bad enough to get rid of their head coach.

And the fact that she refused to comply with the University is completely understandable. Given the disgusting behavior of Penn State and Michigan, why would they? The university has one goal in said circumstances, despite what ADs and deans will say, and it's protecting their brand and the University. They aren't interested in victim rights or due process. And if you have damning evidence, would you turn it over to a third party or lay all the cards on the table against the accuser?

This right here. Women are too scared to come forward or cooperate because they don't feel like the school is on their side and they'll be ostracized by their friends and the student body.
