Former American Heritage girls basketball coach Brett Studley has filed a discrimination complaint with the Florida Commission on Human Relations over his firing from the private school.
Studley’s complaint alleges that last year he came under fire by administrators at the school located in Delray Beach for allowing his players to wear Black Lives Matter t-shirts during pre-game warm-ups after the school failed to appropriately address racial issues among its students. Studley was fired on June 10, 2021, after a series of games and a fundraiser were canceled by administrators, allegedly in retaliation.
Studley, who coached at the school for four years, led the Stallions to their first-ever regional title in 2020-21.His record at Heritage was 54-43 (18 of those losses came in his first season). He also led the Stallions to two district titles.
