“I’m really blessed to have a wonderful family, and we’re excited to become part of the Rutgers community,” Hermann told ESPN on Thursday.

Herman was hired to replace Tim Pernetti following the controversy over former men’s basketball coach Mike  Rice.

After promising to restore the tarnished image of the university Hermann got caught up in her own embarrassing scandal after being accused by several members of the University of Tennessee’s volleyball team that she coached of verbally and emotionally abusing them.

Despite repeated calls for her dismissal, Hermann appears to have weathered the storm.
