Nebraska softball coach Rhonda Revelle will return for a 28th season leading the Cornhusker program.
Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos issued a press release Sunday stating that Revelle will return to her coaching duties "effective immediately."
The long-time Nebraska coach was placed on leave on July 10 pending the completion of an internal review.
The Lincoln Journal-Star reported that "the review focused on how Revelle was treating the players during an unsteady 21-31 season, and it was sparked by senior exit interviews. The nature and severity of the allegations have not been revealed by the university, but concerns were raised by multiple players, sources told the Journal Star."
Those concerns were addressed by Moos in his statement.
“Our student-athletes’ well-being will always be the top priority at the University of Nebraska. Members of our softball team brought forward concerns regarding Coach Revelle and we took their concerns very seriously and initiated a comprehensive review," Moos said in the press release.
“After reviewing the findings, I have concluded that Coach Revelle will continue to lead our softball program. Coach Revelle and her staff understand the seriousness of the student-athlete concerns and are committed to providing a complete and positive student-athlete experience on the field, in the classroom and in life," Moos wrote.
Revelle has served as the Big Ten school's head coach since 1993, and has compiled a record of 989-568 (.635) at Nebraska, making her the all-time wins leader for Nebraska softball and in Nebraska athletics history.
The coach also released a statement in which she wrote: “I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve as the Head Coach of the University of Nebraska Softball Team. I also want both to recognize and thank the University of Nebraska leadership for their steadfast commitment to and unwavering support of this softball program."
“I love this state. I love this University. I love this team. I am so ready for and I am looking forward to Nebraska Softball growing strong and better together during the 2019-2020 season."
