Swim Coach Seeks Relief After Retaliation For Exposing Abuse

Those who abuse athletes and power are enabled to do so by structures designed to hold them accountable for failing that responsibility. A recent wrongful termination lawsuit brings that to light.

At the center of Kuck’s allegations are events that took place late in 2017 and spilled over into the following two years. Kuck says that in October of 2017, mere months after taking the job as the club’s head swim coach, he reported assistant coach Jeremy Anderson to the board for verbally abusing a member family and threatening the family with revocation of their membership in retaliation for a similar complaint the family had made.
