PCC coach who recruited sex offender remains on paid leave

The Pasadena City College’s newspaper reported Thursday that Head Football Coach Kenny Lawler remains on paid leave from the school while the administration continues to conduct an investigation.

The college is investigating how a GPS-wearing registered sex offender named Darryl “Slurp” Stephens was not only allowed to register at the college but was a starter on the football team.

Here’s a portion of the story by PCC Editor Jeremy Balan:

According to school officials, the third-party investigation into his “policies and procedures” has concluded, but further action regarding Lawler’s status at the college is unknown.

“Really nothing has changed, even though the investigation is completed. There has not been any decision made. At this point Kenneth Lawler is still on paid administrative leave and that’s basically all I know at this point,” Interim Dean/Athletic Director Beverly Tate said in a phone message on Tuesday.
