DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Drake University and head women's basketball coach Jenny Baranczyk are being sued by a former assistant coach claiming discrimination.

According to the Des Moines Register, Courtney Graham claims she was pressured to resign approximately six months after Baranczyk learned she was gay, violating Iowa's anti-discrimination law. Graham joined the Drake coaching staff in 2012.

The lawsuit filed last Friday claims Graham was stripped of several coaching duties prior to her resignation in 2015.

Baranczyk and the university are the only defendants named in the lawsuit. No Drake officials have commented on the allegations.
