Ex-NIC wrestling coach files tort claim against college

Print Article

COEUR d’ALENE — Former North Idaho College head wrestling coach Pat Whitcomb, who was fired in January in the middle of his 22nd season, has filed a tort claim to the NIC Board.

“During the past several years, NIC has suffered through a series of allegations of wrongful, corrupt and unlawful conduct,” the tort claim states. “Pat Whitcomb, previously employed as a wrestling coach for NIC, attempted to prevent such misconduct where he could, and to bring to light the misconduct he could not prevent.

“As a result, he has suffered extensive retaliation, ultimately ending in the loss of his employment, interference with his business relationships and other harms and damages.”

A tort is a filing that alleges civil wrongdoing that caused loss or harm from an action. A tort can claim emotional distress, negligence, financial loss and other results.
