Seems like every week brings yet one more allegation of sexual misdeeds at the University of California’s flagship campus.
The latest from the
Oakland Tribune East Bay Times:
Rocked by a widening sexual misconduct scandal, the University of California on Thursday revealed it has hired an outside investigator to examine allegations that the Cal men’s crew coach failed to report a sexual assault claim against one of his rowers.
A former female member of the team claims coach Mike Teti, an Olympic medalist and nationally regarded coach, knew she had been sexually assaulted in December 2013 at a crew team party. Instead of reporting it, she said, the coach told her to stop crying, saying, “You’re no angel anyway,” and asked her about her sexual relationships with other rowers.
Reached Thursday evening, Teti wrote in an email the “allegations are completely false and I’m confident any investigation will prove this.”
The allegations come just weeks after Cal assistant basketball coach Yann Hufnagel resigned after the university found he had propositioned a female reporter for sex and revelations that diving coach Todd Mulzet was docked $455 in pay for sexually bullying a co-worker. On Thursday, the university told this news organization it is not renewing Mulzet’s contract. The coaches are part of a larger scandal that has brought down a UC Berkeley provost, law school dean, world-renowned astronomy professor and other high profile faculty members.
