Media partner 10News reports that a video from Colorado State shows what may have cost former San Diego State University women's basketball coach Beth Burns her job.

In the video, given to 10News by U-T San Diego, Burns appears to slap a clipboard on the lap of assistant coach Adam Barrett during a February game against Colorado State at Viejas Arena. At another look, she takes what appears to be her elbow and jabs him. Both Burns and Barrett are now gone from SDSU.

Beth Burns' attorney, Ed Chapin, told 10News that she is expected to file a lawsuit against San Diego State within a week and says the former head coach's life has been turned upside down as a result of what the school did.

SDSU representatives refused to comment saying the case is a confidential personnel issue.
