Andy Berg Headshot

A former high school girls' soccer coach has filed suit against his former employer, claiming the school ruined his reputation, causing him embarrassment and loss of income.

Ex-Loyola (Ill.) Academy girls' soccer coach Craig Snower is seeking $250,000 in compensatory damages from Loyola Academy for lost income and severed relationships within the soccer community.

According to, Snower filed his lawsuit the day before the statute of limitations would have run out. He alleges that Loyola ruined his reputation and ended his career as a soccer coach, claiming that school administrators maliciously got him fired from his position with the Glenview-based FC United soccer club and defamed him by reporting accusations against him to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
