    Listen, you tried to make this a "look at iowa" issue, and that's fine when top recruitsare running naked down alleyways. But this is an internal administration issue, and it reflects poorly on the state as whole. I found it to be a interesting time to take a shot at an in-state rival.

    ISU had a much more serious situation a few years back and that was pretty much off limits ad far as heckling goes.

    The choice is yours, choose your path wisely...
    I just found it odd. Theres plenty of controversy in cf as well.

    He's a gay union employee in iowa City. Do you think they can just fire him?

    I know a teacher/admin like this in the cedar valley. After 15+ years a parent finally complained. He came out of closet and kept his job. And this was concerning high school kids.

    I don't agree with it, but that's how it works

    While his actions were inappropriate... I find this to be the most concerning

    Investigators said in the report the majority of people they interviewed who worked in the Department of Athletics Student Service and Compliance were concerned about Gray’s behavior with student-athletes. Co-workers and former employees said that during his first employment at UI, and from 2002 to present, they repeatedly witnessed Gray hugging, patting and rubbing the shoulders and hair of student-athletes in a manner that was not casual or professional, and was unsolicited by the student athletes, the report states.
    How was it that no one elevated their objections to his behavior? If the manager/supervisor wasn't going to act forcefully, why not elevate the issue? Sad that this was allowed to continue with a few slaps on the wrist....

    I don't have time to look, but what are the chances that this guy got a raise every year despite his actions?

    Let alone the fact that he left the U of I for several years and they hired him back after issues during his first tenure.

    ?

    The thread suggested that this was an ongoing issue, no? I was curious if I missed something previously.

    This is guy is a creep. And his boss is incompetent. But this is a matter of taste and professionalism, not legality.

    As far as why he still had a job...or why his boss still has a job... Why do you think?

    Reading through the reports, it would appear that his misconduct involved college-aged individuals (not kids). And while it does sound inappropriate, and probably worthy of dismissal from employment, I really don't see anything worthy of "jail for life".

Some of the events were documented back in the mid-90's when he was first employed (left in '95) and the dude still gets hired back several years later? C'mon, that's asking for trouble.

    I just hope the incidents were very limited through those 12-13 years he was employed.
