Golloway Case Dismissed

April 7, 2017

A federal judge recently dismissed a case brought by Sunny Golloway, Auburn University's former Head Baseball Coach against the school. The legal battle is not complete, as Golloway and his lawyers plan to appeal, but the dismissal by the judge is permanent.

“The magistrate judge’s recommendation verified what we’ve said from the beginning, which is there is no validity to Coach Golloway’s claims,” the university said in a statement to the Opelika-Auburn News.

Golloway was dismissed from his position after allegedly breaking NCAA rules. He filed a complaint against the Auburn Board of Trustees, along with several individuals within the athletic department, alleging fraud and tortuous interference with his contract along with a breach of contract and defamation.

The defendants filed a claim for the complaint to be dismissed as the university’s decision was accepted by both the NCAA and SEC. “The NCAA recently closed its investigation and found four Level III violations,” The Plainsman reports from a statement the university made in February. “Auburn’s dismissal of Coach Golloway and some members of the baseball staff was accepted by the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA, which determined no further action was required. No members of the current baseball staff were associated or involved in those violations, and we look forward to the coming season under Coach Thompson.”

​No matter what level you coach at, you should develop a philosophy for your program. For most coaches, a philosophy is developed over time, and comes from coaches they played for, mentors, coaching peers, and other resources, like books.
