Rutgers Fires Swim Coach Amid Emotional Abuse Claims

Rutgers University has fired its women’s swimming and diving coach amid mental and verbal abuse allegations.

“[T]he coach and the Director of Athletics mutually agreed that it was in the best interest of the program for the coach to resign,” Rutgers said in a statement.
