The University of Georgia’s football program has come under fire as of late.
Despite the Bulldogs winning back-to-back National Championships, the team has faced criticism over shocking player conduct which has, for the most part, been allowed to go unpunished.
Speeding and other traffic violations have been sore points for the school, and things came to a head right after they celebrated winning their second-straight title this year, with first-round pick Jalen Carter was involved in an accident that claimed the lives of two people. One of them was his former teammate, Devin Willock, while the other was a staffer, Chandler LeCroy.
Viictoria “Tory” Bowles, a member of the uni’s recruitment team who survived the fatal collision, has reportedly been fired in the wake of a lawsuit she filed against Georgia.
Her lawsuit blames Georgia Athletics for allowing LeCroy to drive the vehicle while knowing about her bad driving history.
She also considers herself to have been disposable to the school.
A statement from her attorney reads:
“Tory, like all other perceived liabilities to the football program, became expendable to UGA, and despite her loyalty and meager salary, has been steamrolled.
“The Association’s public statement issued in response to Tory’s lawsuit, that it ‘patiently supported Ms. Bowles during her long and difficult recovery,’ was obviously self-serving and disingenuous.”
Georgia has labeled the statement as false with claims that Bowles was fired because she did not cooperate with the school’s investigation.
