NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Julie Hermann has not considered resigning as Rutgers' incoming athletic director following reports that 16 years ago she humiliated and emotionally abused players while coaching Tennessee's women's volleyball team.
Speaking to reporters on a conference call, Hermann denied having knowledge of a letter that the 16 Tennessee players submitted to the school. Rutgers officials, however, have talked to her about it in recent days.
The 49-year-old Hermann acknowledged she was an intense coach and may have made a few mistakes handling her team. Hermann says she has matured and believes she is qualified to lead the scandal-marred Rutgers athletic program.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans to examine the appointment before Hermann begins June 17.
