|Embattled Boston U women's coach Greenberg resigns (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: April 23, 2014, 10:44 am]
Boston University women's basketball coach Kelly Greenberg resigned Wednesday about a month after several former players complained that she was so verbally and emotionally abusive that she drove them off the team. The panel found that even though many of the allegations couldn't be substantiated, ''a compelling case was made, based on interviews with the team as a whole, that the manner in which coach Greenberg interacted with many of her players was incompatible with the expectations and standards for university employees, including our coaches,'' Todd Klipp, senior vice president, said in a statement. ''When we shared these conclusions with coach Greenberg, she determined that it would not be possible for her to continue coaching at Boston University,'' he added. Greenberg went 186-127 in 10 years at BU and led the team to four appearances in the Women's National Invitational Tournament.
