Carla Berry Whistleblower In LSU Coaching Scandal

January 30, 2012 by staff 

Carla Berry Whistleblower In LSU Coaching Scandal, 2007 – Carla Berry, the LSU women’s basketball assistant coach who informed the school’s administration about a sexual relationship between head coach Pokey Chatman and a player, has announced that she is leaving the coaching profession.

For both Berry and Chatman (pictured), it’s sad that their great basketball careers — as players and coaches at LSU — have ended like this. For its part, LSU made clear that Berry is leaving of her own volition, and associate athletic director Judy Southard criticized some media reports that characterized LSU as wanting Berry out.

“There is an implication that LSU does not want her back,” Southard said. “That’s not true. We very clearly supported Carla when she came forward. We still support her.”

That may be true, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that Berry is leaving the coaching profession mostly because of the strain caused by this incident. And that’s a shame. Berry is an honorable person who did the right thing when she found out about dishonorable conduct by her boss.
