Surina Dixon was hired by Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas to coach women’s basketball. She quit her job in Tennessee and moved to Texas with her husband in 2008. She noticed soon after she arrived that the new men’s basketball coach was paid $148,000 while she was to be paid only $75,000. She complained. She said this violated Title IX. TSU did not respond. Then, she complained again and mentioned that this was discrimination. See Houston Chronicle report.
After only three months on the job, TSU fired her saying they wanted to move in a new direction. She had signed a three year contract but was fired after only three months. She sought damages equal to the value of her multiple year contract, and, i am sure, compensatory damages (emotional suffering) under Title VII.
