PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Embattled incoming athletic director Julie Hermann plans to visit Rutgers this week.

A university spokesman announced Hermann's visit Monday, saying the details of her itinerary have not been set.

The selection of Hermann to run the university's sports department has been under fire since it was revealed a little more than a week ago that players on the University of Tennessee volleyball team she coached in 1997 complained she had been verbally and emotionally abusive. They said in a letter at the time that she called them "whores, alcoholics and learning disabled."

Hermann is scheduled to start at Rutgers on June 17. She has denied the allegations and said that she had not heard of the letter until last week.

University president Robert Barchi has said Hermann remains his choice.
