Former track coach to question former top Texas officials

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The University of Texas' former school president, former athletic director and former football coach Mack Brown all scheduled to be questioned under oath next week in a sex and race discrimination lawsuit filed by former women's track coach Bev Kearney.

She was forced out in 2013 after the school learned she had a romantic relationship with one of her athletes a decade earlier.

Kearney's lawyers say they want to question former President Bill Powers, former athletic director DeLoss Dodds and Brown. They are expected to ask how the school reacted to Kearney's relationship and how its disciplinary response differed from actions taken against former football assistant Major Applewhite, who was allowed to stay on the job and later promoted despite a relationship with a student trainer on a team bowl game trip after the 2008 season.

School officials insist Kearney crossed the line as a coach and its actions against her were proper.
