One day after resigning as an assistant coach at Cal due to a sexual harassment scandal involving a female reporter, Yann Hufnagel has been hired as an assistant coach at Nevada, sources confirmed to NBCSports.com.
Hufnagel resignation at California came a day before the results of a review were to be released as the school has taken a lot of recent heat for its handling of sexual harassment claims against high-profile officials. Cal gave Hufnagel a termination notice last month, but he appealed before opting to move on.
“The toxic environment at UC Berkeley has made it impossible for Mr. Hufnagel to rejoin the basketball team he loves, even if he is vindicated in full, as the facts would show,” his attorney, Mary McNamara, said in a statement. “He needs to look out for the student-athletes he coached, as well as his own future.”
