Julie Hermann

Within months of being appointed athletic director at Rutgers, Julie Hermann was accused of being an “abusive coach” in 1996 by her former volleyball players at Tennessee University. While Hermann denied accusations that she called the volleyball players “alcoholics and whores,” a letter written by 15 of her former players indicated otherwise. Hermann still has her job.
