From The Indianapolis Star:
The committee investigating allegations against IUPUI women's basketball coach Shann Hart could finish interviews this week and report its conclusions in mid-September, committee chairwoman Sue Shields said.
Shields, a retired judge, said the three-person committee has interviewed numerous people over the past two weeks and that there's a full schedule of interviews this week.
She said the committee has done all it can to reach out to former players and others with letters and e-mails.
"I would guess that everybody who wants to be interviewed will have come forward by this week," Shields said.
IUPUI Chancellor Charles Bantz appointed the committee after The Indianapolis Star reported allegations from 12 of Hart's former players who said the coach violated NCAA rules on practice time and recruiting caused fear and humiliation, disregarded injuries and inappropriately inquired about personal lives.
Hart generally denied the allegations in an interview with The Star and said she could not address some issues because of student privacy laws. Some former players also refuted the allegations.
In Hart's six seasons at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, 42 players and assistant coaches have left the team, including 29 scholarship players.
In a separate story, eight players from American University, where Hart coached from 2000 to 2004, told The Star they experienced much the same conditions as IUPUI's players alleged.
Shields said she anticipated submitting a written report to Bantz on the committee's findings. Others on the committee are Gary Roberts, dean of the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis, and Angie Torain, IUPUI's associate athletic director.
