Just days after Auburn softball coach Clint Myers abruptly announced his retirement, another bombshell dropped.
Tom Junod and Paula Lavigne of ESPN are reporting that Martin Greenberg, an attorney on the behalf of former Auburn softball player Alexa Nemeth, sent a 14-page letter to school officials and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey 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.
Nemeth had been cut from the team following the 2017 season by Myers.
Per the ESPN report, the letter states that, “several players approached Head Coach Myers with proof in the form of text messages from a student-athlete’s cell phone that Coach Corey was having an inappropriate relationship with one of the student-athletes.”
Coach Corey is referring to Auburn assistant coach Corey Myers, Clint Myers’ son. Corey Myers resigned before a trip against Georgia.
