It doesn’t state the allegation, but it sounds like they’re claiming she was too tough on them.

I’m seeing the same…It just seems UNC can’t catch a break…

I don’t know the merits of this one, but I think we’re likely to see more of these complaints.

Allegedly the coaches are accused of pushing injured players to return too soon. I know at UNC medical staff clears players, and coaches have no say. Also, it was alleged that the Head Coach used some sensitive language during practice. Hatchell has been there forever. She is old, and is a cancer survivor. She is religious, also. That said, something must be up, or maybe not. As for UNC…. it’s better to be sure, than assume all is well. I think it may have to do with different generations, and the coach being too hard on the players, who revolted and said they were mistreated.  The team was a little bit scorched during the NCAA stuff, but ultimately not punished. It led to the transfer of some players. The team get little press locally, so I can not pretend to have inside info. It will come out eventually one way or the other.

I’d be fine if she chose to retire. I’m sure she is a great x and o coach but every time she opens her mouth in interviews it is just kind of embarrassing. She would be a better fit at a school like Liberty or some place like that.
