Minnesota athletic director Norwood Teague resigned Friday amid a sexual harassment scandal fortified by predatory text messages sent to university employees.
In a first-person account for the Star-Tribune, Rayno detailed Teague's escalating, inappropriate behavior that started with text messages before graduating to something much more disturbing. Rayno describes an evening in which she met Teague for a drink — a common occurrence between a university official and a reporter cultivating sources. But Teague had other things in mind, and when Rayno denied his physical advances, he got more aggressive.
