On Saturday, ESPN published a report that a former Auburn softball player alleging that the Auburn coaching staff was abusive, had a pattern of sexual harassment and that there were concerns about a cover-up by the administration to Auburn officials and the governor of Alabama.
Following the publishing of the report, Auburn released an official statement on the report.
“The well-being of Auburn student-athletes was and is our utmost concern,” the statement said. “In each instance of a personnel issue or question, Auburn Athletics works in conjunction with the university’s administration, following all established guidelines and in compliance with NCAA and SEC regulations when applicable, to investigate, learn the facts and take appropriate action. We followed this same procedure in matters related to the softball program. By both practice and in compliance with federal privacy laws, Auburn doesn’t disclose details of personnel matters.”
Earlier in the week Auburn softball coach C lint Myers abruptly resigned from his position.
