• It’s good to see Stacy Johnson-Klein find employment once again.
Then again, it’s always good to see Stacy Johnson-Klein, period.
• Brady Quinn is not gay, so don’t go cruising online for him.
• Mike Tyson to fight in Spain? Sounds like a lot of bull to us.

We fondly remember Stacy Johnson-Klein, the former milftastic matron of the Fresno State women’s basketball team, who became embroiled in a bitter legal battle with the school over her firing & her resulting sexual harassment lawsuit.
And now we’re happy to learn from ERRATIC MAGIC that Ms. Johnson-Klein has found employment once again. And it’s not just some sideline job - Stacy’s going to become the general manager of a certain b-ball team in Oklahoma.
Unfortunately, it’s not the one you’re thinking of. Fortunately, Stacy’s also seeking opportunities for book & movie deals. Read more…
A follow-up to Saturday’s update on former Fresno State women’s hoops coach Stacy Johnson-Klein’s sexual harassment suit: the FRESNO BEE says Johnson-Klein will take the reduced $6.6 million award the judge handed down (cut from the jury’s $19.1 million) and avoid a new trial.
But this may not be the end of it: after having its collective behind handed to it thrice by former female coaches or administrators in sexual harassment trials and a fourth lawsuit on the way, the Fresno State brass is still considering an appeal.
You may recall back in December that former Fresno State women’s hoops coach Stacy Johnson-Klein went and won herself a $19.1 million dollar award from a jury in her sexual harassment trial. Well, like most civil suits with large awards, the FRESNO BEE reports that a judge has hacked that down to a more manageable $6.6 million, should she choose to accept it.
Johnson-Klein has a little less than two weeks to accept the money on the table or pursue a new trial. This won’t take any heat off of the Fresno State administrators, though, as Klein’s case was merely the third major sexual harassment claim the school had to deal with from its athletics department — the school has handed out multi-million dollar judgments or settlements to former volleyball coach Lindy Vivas and former athletic administrator Diane Milutnovich, and that has politicians calling for heads to roll.
MILF-TASTIC COACH WINS $19M SEX HARASS JUDGEMENT: KSEE-TV in Fresno is all over the sex harassment trial of former Fresno State women’s basketball coach Stacy Johnson-Klein (photo link!).
Johnson-Klein sued the institution for gender discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation after she was fired by the school two years ago. A verdict was reached in the trial yesterday, and here are the astonishing rewards J-K won from the jury (which took only hours to deliberate the case):
- $634,254 for past economic losses
- $4.4+ million for future loss of income
- $3 million for past non-economic losses like mental suffering
- $11 million for future pain and suffering(!)
$11M for future pain and suffering? We think that money would’ve been better spent on FSU football coach Pat Hill after he endured watching his defense this season.
