TALLAHASSEE, Fla. —

Already mired in controversy for failing to police hazing on its campus, Florida A&M University has moved to fire baseball coach Willie Brown. He was accused by the school of harassing a player for his sexual orientation.

FAMU attorney Avery McKnight said in a statement from the school Thursday that the appropriate employment action is under way to dismiss Brown. He said any further information could not be released in a case where sexual harassment is alleged.

Brown's attorney, Steve Andrews, called the charges bogus and threatened to file a defamation suit against the university. Andrews said he has affidavits from players who say no player was treated differently.

A school spokesman said former Rattler outfielder Kevin Clethen has handled the team since Brown was put on leave in November.
