Softball Scandal

Former Auburn assistant softball coach Corey Myers banned from campus

Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - Auburn banned former Auburn associate head coach Corey Myers from the University campus two days before his father's, Clint Myers, retirement.

In a letter obtained by ESPN, the university's Title IX office wrote a strongly worded piece advising Corey to stay away from campus.

"We have determined there is sufficient evidence ... to conclude that you violated the policy prohibiting 'pursuing or engaging in romantic relationships' with more than one student whom you supervised or taught while you were employed as associate head coach of the softball program," Auburn Title IX coordinator Kelley Taylor wrote in the letter to Corey obtained by ESPN and was dated Aug. 21, 2017.

"...You are banned from campus property and may not attend any university events. Further, you are forbidden from attending any Auburn University softball-related activities or events, whether on- or off-campus."

On Aug. 26, ESPN reported that former softball player Alexa Nemeth filed a Title IX suit alleging abusive treatment by the Auburn softball coaching staff and a pattern of sexual harassment. The report came days after head coach Clint Myers announced his retirement.

In an Eagle Eye exclusive, a former player who wishes to remain anonymous told the story of what really happened in the Auburn softball program.

The former player stated that the team was locked in their team room before leaving for the Georgia series for four hours because of pictures of text messages which confirmed the relationship between Cory and the former player.

The meeting also included Associate AD Meredith Jenkins along with the softball coaching staff.

According to our anonymous source, Jenkins told the players “a police report had been filed and that if we had the picture we could face criminal charges.”

Eagle Eye has reached out to Auburn Athletics for further comment, we will update the story as more details are released.
