Report: Auburn softball assistant Corey Myers was banned for evidence of improper relationships

More details have been released regarding the ban of Auburn assistant softball coach Corey Myers.

Myers was banned by the Tigers last summer due to “pursuing or engaging in romantic relationships” with more than one student while he was employed as associate head coach, according to a letter from Kelley Taylor, Auburn’s Title IX coordinator, which was obtained by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” last week.

“We have considered the nature of the violations, which we found to have occurred with more than one student and over an extended period, and have determined that the appropriate sanction is that you are not eligible for rehire by the university at any time,” Taylor wrote in the letter to Myers, which was dated Aug. 21, 2017, per ESPN. “You are banned from campus property and may not attend any university events. Further, you are forbidden from attending any Auburn University softball-related activities or events, whether on- or off-campus.”

Myers’ ban came two days before his father, Clint, suddenly retired from his position as Auburn’s head coach. Myers had been under investigation since fall 2016, but there had been “insufficient evidence,” according to the letter.

ESPN contacted Myers on Monday, but he declined to comment on the letter from Auburn’s Title IX office.
