Chaminade Coach Forced to Resign

  • by

Chaminade Prep coach Megan Kelso was forced to resign after allegations of bullying were brought  forward by seven current and former players, 11 parents, a former coach and an attorney representing the families. There was reportedly a year of complaints about the girls’ basketball coach submitted to both the school and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The threat of a boycott from the team prompted the school to force the resignation. The allegations include targeting players for bullying, verbal and emotional abuse, body shaming, inappropriate comments about her personal and sexual life and homophobic comments.  A statement from Chaminade principal Luis Guerra to the parents said, “Megan Kelso will be taking a leave from her leadership role on the team. We respect the privacy and dignity of our employees and our students, and for that reason, we are unable to provide any additional information. We ask that you respect the privacy of Ms. Kelso also.” In an email to the Daily News Guerra stated, “What we can share is that our school takes concerns about our athletic program seriously. We have procedures and policies in place to ensure that employment matters, including those involving our athletic staff, are addressed appropriately at our school.”
