Hermann Hire Strikes Controversy


Former Louisville Assistant Athletic Director (or is it Assistant to the Athletic Director?) Julie Hermann's hiring as the new A.D. at Rutgers University is meeting with a lot of controversy following reports she was an abusive coach while she led the University of Tennessee's Women's Volleyball team. Not something I like to see our fine school's name associated with, and reading the stories, it's hard to give Mrs. Hermann the benefit of the doubt. Maybe working for Tom MFJB Jurich has shown her the way. It's hard to believe, though, that she will be able to stay in this position considering what led to her hiring in the first place. Sad.
