Ex-Husker named new Rutgers A.D.
Julie Hermann was introduced as the new athletic director at Rutgers University on Wednesday. Hermann was a senior associate athletic director and senior woman administrator at the University of Louisville. Rutgers has been looking for a new A.D. since Tim Pernetti resigned on April 5, part of the fallout from the Mike Rice scandal.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Rutgers named Julie Hermann its new athletic director Wednesday, and the former senior associate athletic director at Louisville promised a restart for the scandal-scarred program following the ouster of its men’s basketball coach and the resignation of other officials.
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.
