PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers has named Julie Hermann its new athletic director and the former No. 2 athletic administrator at Louisville promised a restart for the scandal-scarred program.
Hermann, a former Nebraska volleyball player, replaces Tim Pernetti, who quit last month after the firing of basketball coach Mike Rice. Practice videos surfaced of Rice shoving and throwing basketballs at players and yelling gay slurs at them. Hermann will be paid $450,000 annually as a base salary with $50,000 in incentives and $35,000 contributed to a deferred compensation plan, according to a university release.
