Jags Meyer, Barke Summoned in Iowa Discrimination Proceedings

Jacksonville, Florida (AP) —Jacksonville Jaguars is sued Wednesday by urban Meyer coach and Trentbar Kegeneral manager for a black player who sued former Iowa strength coach Chris Doyle for discrimination. He said he had submitted as part.

The team said Meyer and Barke had submitted a written response to the subpoena. The subpoena seeks information about Jaguar’s decision to hire and dismiss Doyle in January.

“We will respect and cooperate with legal proceedings as necessary, but Jaguar does not have any information related to the proceedings between the student athlete and the University of Iowa.”

In a federal lawsuit filed in Iowa, Hawkeyes staff insulted black players with racial slurs and black hairstyles, fashion, and culture to match the “Iowa Way” promoted by Kirk Ferentz head coach. He forced him to abandon him and accused him of retaliation for his remarks.

The university agreed to pay Doyle $ 1.1 million in a resignation agreement in June 2020. This is after many ex-players have said on social media that he bullied and discriminated against them. Doyle denied the claim.

A study by an outside law firm found that the rules of the program “perpetuated racial and cultural prejudices and reduced the value of cultural diversity,” and coaches could insult players without results. It’s done.

Judge Stephanie Rose of the US District Court previously released athletic director Gary Barta and current strength coach Raymond Braithwaite as defendants. The allegations that Iowa created and maintained systematic patterns and practices of tort discrimination and Ferenc did not train and supervise his staff were also dismissed.

Former players were allowed to pursue deliberate allegations of discrimination by attack coordinator Brian Ferenc, Kirk’s son, Doyle.
