First-year Arizona women's basketball assistant Sean LeBeauf is accused of sexually harassing former players, including one case in which he is accused of sending a picture of his genitals to a player's mother, according to a civil suit against him.
The suit, filed by former Paris (Texas) Junior College player Ebonee Tate, alleges that LeBeauf harassed her and others while he was head coach and athletic director there and that the school failed to do anything about it.
According to the suit, LeBeauf allegedly sent Tate inappropriate messages, and when she alerted school president Pam Anglin, who's also named in the suit, the suit alleges Anglin told her LeBeauf had a history of flirtatious behavior and claims she advised her to let it go. Tate claims LeBeauf threatened her and that she eventually lost her scholarship.
According to the suit, LeBeauf's past indiscretions included a sexual relationship with a player in 2010.
