The former Rich Central High School basketball coach and guidance counselor who was fired after writing a racy self-help book containing graphic opinions on sex and women is suing the district for $1 million, claiming his First Amendment rights were violated.
Bryan Craig, who was fired on Sept. 18, filed the lawsuit this week in U.S. District Court in Chicago. The lawsuit is asking a jury to award Craig money for attorney fees and to “compensate him for the injuries he suffered.”
Craig last month was suspended as a counselor at Rich Central and resigned as girls varsity basketball coach after a SouthtownStar report on a book he wrote, “It’s Her Fault.”
The book included graphic descriptions about his opinions on vaginal differences between women of different races and said, “The easiest kill for a man is through the young lady with low self-esteem.”
