Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - Former Auburn softball player Alex Nemeth alleges abusive treatment by the Auburn softball coaching staff and a pattern of sexual harassment, according to a report from espnW.
Milwaukee-based lawyer Martin Greenberg, who issued the letter on Nemeth's behalf, states that Nemeth filed a Title IX sexual discrimination complaint against the school. Nemeth claims that former head coach Clint Myers "knowingly let his son, Corey Myers, have relations and pursue relations with multiple members of the team."
Corey Myers was an associate head coach until his abrupt resignation on March 30 citing family reasons.
Clint Myers announced his abrupt retirement on Wednesday, also citing family reasons.
According to Greenberg's letter, he states that on March 30 "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."
Nemeth was a true-freshman last season and was cut from the team by Clint Myers following the 2017 season.
Auburn has released the following statement in response to the ESPN report:
