PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann has met with the family of a former football player who left the team after claiming a coach bullied him and then limited his playing time.

Hermann met with the parents of Jevon Tyree on Wednesday to clarify misunderstandings and resolve the issues relating to Tyree's experience as a student-athlete at Rutgers University.

Clarice and Mark Tyree were accompanied at the meeting by the Rev. Dr. DeForest B. Soaries Jr., senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens.

The university said the interests of the student-athlete were central to their conversation.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood previously said the university will honor the scholarship for Jevon Tyree for the balance of the 2013-2014 academic year.
