Former Director Sues

April 11, 2018

Jermaine Holtz, who was dismissed as Director of the Academic Support Program for Athletes at North Carolina State University in 2015, is suing the school. According to wralSPORTSfan, Holtz alleges that the athletic leadership retaliated against him for raising concerns about their hiring Christine Lutz, the daughter of associate basketball coach Bobby Lutz as an athletic tutor, which he cited as a conflict of interest. He also alleges that the leadership retaliated against him for an e-mail report about tutors that called attention to possible violations of NCAA rules.

"[Director of Athletics Debbie] Yow publicly expressed her frustrations with Plaintiff for emailing the document and she was visibly upset about Plaintiff emailing the Tutor Oversight Document,” the lawsuit said. “Yow explained that she would never send an email out containing such information."

Holtz claims that he received more discipline and less training than his white colleagues. He said he was ultimately forced out “without prior notice or warning” after about a year at the school. Holtz is seeking punitive damages “in an amount to properly penalize the defendants.”
