Coach Sues Community College over Defamation

Bob Every, a former softball coach at Lansing Community College, is suing the college claiming that they defamed him after firing him last year.  He claims that the college falsely reported to the National Junior College Athletic Associate that he struck a female athlete.  The athlete claims he struck her with a closed fist.

Every claims it is false and has been the worst nightmare of his life.  He worked for the college for almost four decades and now feels his reputation is ruined.  He wants the LCC and the player to retract their statements.  Trial dates have yet to be scheduled.
