Gov. Christie said he doesn’t want to micromanage the university and won’t weigh in on whether incoming athletic director Julie Hermann should start at the school as scheduled on June 17.
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
Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak says the governor is aware of the report about Julie Hermann in the Star-Ledger of Newark, but wants to get more details before commenting.
The woman hired to clean up Rutgers’ scandal-scarred athletic program quit as Tennessee’s women’s volleyball coach 16 years ago after her players submitted a letter complaining she ruled through humiliation, fear and emotional abuse, The Star-Ledger reported Saturday night on its website.
