University of San Francisco fires baseball coach Nino Giarratano after ex-players sue over fired assistant's conduct

Mar 13, 2022

Longtime USF baseball coach Nino Giarratano has been fired, the school announced Sunday after a lawsuit filed Friday by ex-players alleged a pattern of sexualized and abusive behavior from an assistant coach.

The assistant, Troy Nakamura, was fired in January and Giarratano was “officially reprimanded” less than two weeks later. But USF alleges Giarratano allowed Nakamura onto the team’s baseball field last week, more than two months after Nakamura’s termination.
