Oregon Track Coach Gets Probation in Sex Abuse Case

BowermanMelissa Bowerman, a Madras High School track coach in Oregon, has pled guilty to the sexual abuse of a 17-year-old boy whom she coached on the track team.

Bowerman, 45, is the daughter-in-law of Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman.

In 2012, Bowerman was dismissed from her volunteer position as track coach at Condon/Wheeler after escorting another 17-year-old boy to the prom. At the time of her arrest, her 73-year-old husband commented, “We all should have learned from that.”

She will be placed on probation for five years and will have to register as a sex offender. Her probation also includes restricted internet usage and no contact with males under the age of 18.
Bowerman spent 26 days in jail after her July 2014 arrest.
