Portland Resigns

Rene Portland has resigned her position as head coach of Penn State's women's basketball team.

In answer to my first question,
"This did not have anything to do with the lawsuit to our knowledge,'' Karen Doering, attorney for Harris at the National Center for Lesbian Rights, said regarding Portland's resignation.
AD Tim Curley affirmed that Portland was not forced to resign, and that he wasn't surprised by her decision.

On the other hand, a reporter at cites "a source close to the situation [who] said Portland was given an ultimatum by the university last Friday -- step down or be dismissed."
