Louisville lacrosse coach accused of abusive tactics

Louisville lacrosse coach accused of abusive tactics

Not sure what to make of this story. The story paints a very negative picture of the women's lacrosse program and there are plenty of quotes from former players to back it up. Some of the accusations are pretty bad and if they are proven to be true, I think the department should fire the coach. For example, here are two of the worst in my opinion.

Former midfielder Darby Dudley told The Courier-Journal that at an airport after a game in Jacksonville, Fla., in 2012, Young claimed an injured player had a bad attitude, so she made the player, the captains and other injured players she was with — including two with torn knee ligaments and one with a stress fracture — do push-ups in the terminal. Dudley, who had a torn ACL, said she was forced to do 250 push-ups.

[...]

At halftime of a game at Syracuse on April 12, according to players, Young lambasted Garraty for a perceived lack of respect and continued the tirade after the loss, ultimately kicking her off the team.

Garraty found her father, Steve, who had driven to Syracuse from his home in Pennsylvania, at a postgame tailgate gathering and told him what had happened. She then walked toward the team bus, but it was gone.

What are your thoughts and if the allegations prove to be true, what do you think needs to be done?
