The former associate athletic director at the University of St. Joseph has filed a federal lawsuit against longtime UConn basketball coach and current St. Joseph coach Jim Calhoun and his long-time assistant Glen Miller alleging sexual discrimination over disparaging comments they made about her including Calhoun calling her “hot” and Miller telling her he’d “swipe left.” The lawsuit filed Wednesday by Jaclyn Piscitelli against the university also names former athletic director Bill Cardarelli for failing to take any action when she brought allegations against Calhoun to him and alleges that the former UConn basketball coach turned the athletic department into a “male-dominated, hostile work environment” for any females. The 13-page complaint highlights several examples of what Piscitelli said was degrading treatment by Calhoun and Miller towards females. On example is called the “K-cup” incident. -Dave Altimari, Hartford Courant. Read More.
