Marlene Stollings lawsuit takes issue with Texas Tech firing

Texas Tech women's basketball coach Marlene Stollings and her staff have been accused of abuse by players.

Former Texas Tech women’s basketball coach Marlene Stollings filed a lawsuit against the school and athletic director Kirby Hocutt on Tuesday. 

Stollings was fired on Aug. 6, a day after USA Today published a story detailing a reported culture of physical and emotional abuse in the Lady Raiders program. In Stollings’s two years as head coach of the program, 12 players left amid allegations of abuse. 

The lawsuit, which was filed Oct. 20 in U.S. District Court in Lubbock, Texas, claims fraudulent inducement, fraud, breach of contract, defamation and sex discrimination. 

“This termination could not properly have been for cause,” the lawsuit said. “Texas Tech’s own internal reviews had found — accurately — that Coach Stollings had not taken any actions which were in violation of her employment contract.”

The lawsuit says Stollings was fired due to “discriminatory biases against female coaches.” 

“Texas Tech and Mr. Hocutt regularly, and in this instance in particular, penalized female coaches for employing the same demanding and effective coaching techniques that male coaches utilize and utilized without consequence.” 

The lawsuit also states that the school’s decision to terminate Stollings was “a part of Texas Tech’s and Mr. Kirby’s mistreatment of members of the gay and lesbian community.”
