As it's been said before, Chuck Williams had a "thing" for redheads. I joined the cross country team my sophomore year, and he was the coach. Durning stretches, he would often put his hands on my hips/butt to make sure I was "doing the stretch right." Other times, I would be on a run and he would come out of nowhere and run with me the entire time. While this wasn't an assault by any means, it made me very uncomfortable being in the middle of the woods alone with him. Another time, I was sitting outside of the dining hall, and he came up, put his arms around me, and said, "How's my favorite red head doing?" I feel hesitant to share these things, as they lack in severity compared to other stories, but I felt very uncomfortable around him and recognized his motivations. Additionally, this seems like the appropriate platform to share my experience with student-teacher misconduct, regardless of how big or little the incidents were.
