Seems like your professional life and personal life should be separate. I don't get why these people with high profile positions have to leave their profession, that they are often very very good at, because they failed in their marriage commitments. If this is how things are should they also have to resign if they get a divorce? Or if they have a kid who gets bad grades?Hall of Fame track coach resigns after admitting affair with athlete
(CNN) -- Hall of Fame women's track and field coach Bev Kearney, whose story of recovery from a paralyzing auto accident inspired people around the country, has resigned due to an "intimate consensual relationship" with a University of Texas athlete in 2002, the school announced Saturday night.
The head of the university's legal affairs department said in a written statement that Kearney was a good person who was important to the school.
"However, she made this terrible mistake and used unacceptably poor judgment in having this relationship," Patti Ohlendorf said.
The relationship began 10 1/2 years ago and ended "at least about eight years ago," the statement said.
