A wrongful termination lawsuit filed by former College of Charleston baseball coach Matt Heath was reopened this week when a judge in the case said that the “landscape has changed” according to a report by the Post & Courier.

Heath filed the lawsuit just days after his June 2017 firing, claiming that he was let go because athletic director Matt Roberts wanted to hire former South Carolina baseball coach and close friend Chad Holbrook.

Defendants said that Heath was fired for cause, after there had been reports of abuse and a “toxic environment” created during Heath’s two-season tenure as head coach.
