Explosive allegations at the University of Notre Dame.
The New York Daily News is reporting that a Notre Dame student is accusing a female academic coach of trying to convince many of the school's Black basketball and football players into having sex with her daughter. Official court documents were filed Friday.
According to the student who came forward, the unidentified academic coach, who is white, tried to set up "sexually and racially motivated" affairs with her daughter, even allegedly including condoms, hotel rooms and transportation in exchange for academic favors.
The student, who is Black, started at Notre Dame on an academic scholarship in Fall 2014 and claims that the tutor would ask him about the “nature, frequency, and quality of the sexual activities” he and her daughter had, making “racially-charged comments about his sexual prowess and genitalia."
Notre Dame told the South Bend Tribune that the lawsuit is "unfounded"
"The allegations against the University of Notre Dame in the complaint are unfounded,” the school's spokesperson Paul Browne said. “As are gratuitous and unfounded references to 'student athletes' — an allegation that is nothing more than a cynical attempt to attract publicity.”
