Former Auburn Softball Player Alleges Sexual Harassment in Title IX Complaint

A former Auburn softball player sent a 14-page complaint alleging abusive treatment by the Auburn coaching staff, a pattern of sexual harassment and concerns about an administrative cover-up to school officials and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey a month before the abrupt retirement Wednesday of head coach Clint Myers.

According to the article, the letter, sent by attorney Martin Greenberg on behalf of former player Alexa Nemeth, was sent after Nemeth filed a Title IX sexual discrimination complaint with Auburn University, claiming Coach Clint Myers allowed his son Corey Myers to have and pursue relations with members of the softball team. Corey Myers resigned as an assistant coach in March.

Greenberg's letter states that the resignation came on the same day that several players showed Clint Myers text messages from a player's phone showing that his son "was having an inappropriate relationship with one of the student-athletes".

Auburn Athletics said that every time there is a personnel issue or question, Athletics works with the University's administration to follow guidelines in compliance with NCAA and SEC regulations to investigate and take proper action.

Nemeth had been cut from the team following the 2017 season by Myers.

The players were then told by Auburn executive associate athletic director Meredith Jenkins that they "were risking arrest for taking the text messages from their teammate's phone" after being "quarantined" before a trip to Georgia.
