Corey Myers resigned as an assistant coach in March.

ESPN.com reports that a former Auburn softball player alleges abusive treatment by the Auburn coaches, a pattern of sexual harassment, and an attempt by administrators to cover it up while she was on the team.

The letter, sent by Milwaukee attorney Martin Greenberg on behalf of former player Alexa Nemeth, came weeks after Nemeth filed a Title IX sexual discrimination complaint with the school claiming "Coach Clint Myers knowingly let his son Corey Myers have relations and pursue relations with multiple members of the team".

Just days after Auburn softball coach Clint Myers abruptly announced his retirement, another bombshell dropped. ESPN reports the letter was sent approximately one month ago.

"The well-being of Auburn student-athletes was and is our utmost concern", the Auburn Athletics Department said in a statement to The Plainsman. In each instance of a personnel issue or question, Auburn Athletics works in conjunction with the university's administration, following all established guidelines and in compliance with NCAA and SEC regulations when applicable, to investigate, learn the facts and take appropriate action.

Clint Myers, who cut Nemeth from the Auburn softball team in 2017, retired on Wednesday.

The players were then told by Auburn executive associate athletic director Meredith Jenkins that they "were risking arrest for taking the text messages from their teammate's phone" after being "quarantined" before a trip to Georgia.
