Student-Athletes Threaten Lawsuits Against Clemson

Jason Scott Headshot

A group seeking to save Clemson University’s men’s track and field program has reportedly hired a lawyer and threatened a lawsuit against the school if it follows through on its plan to eliminate the program following this academic year.

ESPN reports that Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich announced plans to cut the team, along with the men’s cross country program, in November. Radakovich cited budget concerns brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and Title IX concerns as reasons for eliminating the programs. 

The track group has hired Oakland-based attorney Arthur Bryant to argue that, in fact, by cutting men’s programs, Clemson risks Title IX violations by providing too few opportunities for male student-athletes to compete.
