MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A women’s volleyball coach fired by Middle Tennessee State is vowing to continue his battle with the university over allegations of sexual discrimination in the Athletic Department.

On Monday, the university released the results of its internal investigation into the 28 Title IX discrimination charges Matt Peck made against MTSU just days after he was fired last November.

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex.

The University says it determined that all but three of the 28 complaints are unfounded. The issues Peck raised range from charges of sexual impropriety to unequal facilities for men and women.

Peck tells the Daily News Journal he may consider a lawsuit.

MTSU is also the subject of an ongoing federal Title IX investigation.
