In a statement released Tuesday, Joan Cronan, women’s athletic director emeritus at Tennessee, says she holds Hermann in high regard, and that while “it was a very frustrating time for everyone connected with the volleyball program, I do not recall it being an abusive situation.”

In a conference call Monday, Hermann said she hasn’t considered resigning following a report that 16 years ago she humiliated Tennessee players. She denied having knowledge of a letter players say they submitted. The 49-year-old Hermann acknowledged she made mistakes, but says she has matured and believes she is qualified to lead Rutgers.

Hermann will begin her new post June 17.
