Lee's Summit High School track coach says she was fired with a 'racist text' from head coach - + KSHB.com



A volunteer track coach was relieved of her duties after she said
the head coach sent her a racist text message informing her of her
removal. 
 
Pam Smiley ran track for Wisconsin
and has coached in some capacity for 16 years. She decided to volunteer
as an assistant this year at Lee's Summit High School where her
daughter runs on the team as a freshman. 
 
Smiley said she was stunned when she received the following text message from head coach Karen Sanders on Sunday:
"When a coach on my staff breaks a rule and doesn't see it as wrong,
and also brings in other coaches as being responsible for breaking the
rule, which they were not, I have a hard time letting that coach
continue being part of my staff. Pleas turn in your coach's shirt and
jacket to the office and I will get it from them. Your skin does deem
you untrustworthy!"
Sanders and her husband
Clint, who coached the team as well, both resigned early on Wednesday.
Smiley was also told she would be forced to not have any contact with
the Lady Tigers track team. 
 
Smiley and
concerned parents met with school administrators Wednesday afternoon in
an attempt to get clarification as to why she still didn't have a job.
According to Smiley, the school told them the text messages they
received from Sanders and herself did not match. Smiley said she is
planning on turning in her phone records as proof.
