While a pamphlet of sex alternatives from an Australian Christian school was amusing, this story of a coach taking an interest in her players' lives well beyond that of a normal coach is far from it.
Beckie Francis was fired from her position of women's basketball coach at University of Oakland on June 12th. Didn't hear about it? Well at the time it wasn't a big story.
The school joined Division I in 1997 but hasn't been what one might call an athletic powerhouse, so the news didn't make "the news."
Until last night.
