FORMER EMPLOYEE CLAIMS SUPPORT IN CLAIMS AGAINST MAGIC
Published January 19, 1996
George Scholz testified Thursday that former Magic Coach Matt Guokas supports his claims that Magic officials made up reasons to fire him, according to the ORLANDO SENTINEL. Scholz, who is suing the team for reverse discrimination and defamation, quoted Guokas as once saying he approved of Scholz's work, but thought his job may still be in jeopardy. Scholz says the team fired him as assistant coach to hire a black coach, but Magic officials contend he was only given the title as a courtesy. Scholz testified that a team document that says he was dismissed because he "followed his own agenda," was falsified and that Guokas backs that claim (Gene Yasuda, ORLANDO SENTINEL, 1/19).
