And Hermann's past was more troubling.

Some politicians and alumni called for her to be replaced, and many outspoken boosters voiced their support for Pernetti and said they would stop contributing to the athletic program.

Barchi, however, stood by her, and Gov. Chris Christie backed him.

In recent weeks, Hermann, the former top athletic assistant at Louisville, met with the boosters and seemed to win over some. The new athletic director was on campus more than a week ago and made a good impression meeting with players, coaches and administrators.

Long-time women's basketball coach C. Vivian Stringer said Monday that she was impressed with her new boss.

"We love her," said Stringer, whose contract is one of the pressing things that Hermann needs to discuss.

Stringer had an appointment with an eye doctor and had to rush off.
