~ The court also applied what appears to have been rational
basis review in a case involving a university coach who was
terminated when his son decided to enroll at a rival college. In
Kipps v. Callier, 197 F.3d 765, 769 (5th Cir. 1999), the court held
that the school’s concerns about a negative impact on "alumni
relations and recruiting efforts" were objectively reasonable and,
thus, the defendants were immune from the coach’s claims.
Kipps did not require proof of a material and substantial
disruption. (2008)
