A former high school water-polo coach filed a discrimination complaint against Charter Oak Unified School District and claimed he was fired last month because he is gay.
Mitch Stein, who worked as an assistant water-polo coach at Charter Oak High during the summer, said Principal Kathleen Wiard terminated him after receiving an anonymous letter complaining about photos found on his Facebook and Myspace pages.
Stein said the letter included two photos, one of him posing with two drag queens and the other of him about to eat a corn dog. According to the complaint, the letter’s author called Stein “unfit to coach” and threatened to go to the school board if he was not fired immediately.
