William Barr was the head coach of the Richmond football
team on a yearly basis for ten years. His current contract term was from 2015
to 2018. During a football game, a local sports reporter informed Mr. Reynolds,
Richmond’s principal, that Barr had shouted a racial epithet at a player on the
opposing team. At some point after this game, the principal met with the school
district’s superintendent and discussed the renewal of Barr’s coaching
contract. In January 2016, at the conclusion of the football season, Reynolds
informed Barr that he would be fully compensated for the entire term of his
coaching contract, but that all of Barr’s duties as coach would cease
immediately. (Barr received the total amount due under his coaching contract.)
Reynolds provided no reasons for terminating Barr and did not afford Barr a
hearing to contest his termination. The school denied Barr’s request that he be
permitted to present evidence at a hearing as to why his contract should be
renewed. Mr. Reynolds announced to the local newspaper that “Coach Barr’s
contract will not be renewed.” He made no comments as to the reasons why the
contract would not be renewed. Following his termination, Barr sent out
applications for several head football coaching positions but received no job
offers. Barr has filed suit alleging breach of contract and that he has been
deprived of his fundamental rights to continued employment and to his
reputation. Consider the preceding materials in determining whether Barr is
likely to prevail on his claims. Also see Puchalski v. School Dist. of
Springfield, 161 F. Supp. 2d 395 (E.D. Penn. 2001); Ridpath v. Board of
Governors Marshall Univ., 447 F.3d 292 (4th Cir. 2006) (university’s labeling
as “corrective action” its reassignment of athletic director to a position
outside of athletic department created a charge of a serious character defect,
which in turn gave rise to a liberty interest and entitled plaintiff to a
hearing that allowed him to contest the reassignment).
