A senior guard on Boston University women’s basketball team is claiming that head coach Kelly Greenburg inflicted emotional abuse on her players.
Melissa Gallo quit the team at the end of the regular season, saying the coach constantly made her cry and made her feel invisible, reports ABC News. In total, four out of 13 members of Boston University’s women’s basketball team quit during the past year. Two of them gave up big scholarships, and one left the school.
Greenburg faced similar accusations in 2008 when two scholarship players quit the team after alleging she bullied them. The claims prompted an investigation by Boston University.
The coach still has many supporters, including current and former players. She was named the America East conference’s Coach of the Year in 2009.
