Even though a number of New Jersey government officials already want newly-appointed Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann fired after accusations of her abusing former players as a volleyball coach, school president Robert Barchi says Hermann's job is safe.

Via Brett McMurphy of ESPN:

"It's been communicated to me (by Barchi) that I'm the athletic director and will lead Rutgers into the Big Ten," Hermann told ESPN in a phone interview Monday.

Hermann said Barchi spoke with the Board of Governors on her behalf and that the Board of Governors has reached out to her with support.

In 1997, Hermann promptly quit after all 15 of her volleyball players at the University of Tennessee accused her of mistreatment. This should play out well.
