BOSTON (AP) — Boston University coach Kelly Greenberg, under fire from some former players who alleged she was verbally and emotionally abusive, has stepped down.

The university announced Wednesday that Greenberg has resigned after 10 years at the helm.

The university assembled a panel to investigate the allegations of abuse that four former scholarship players say prompted them to quit the team last season.

University senior vice president Todd Klipp said while the panel found that many of the allegations against Greenberg could not be substantiated, "a compelling case was made ... that the manner in which coach Greenberg interacted with many of her players was incompatible with the expectations and standards for university employees."

Supporters called her a tough but fair coach.

Greenberg went 186-127 at BU, including 13-20 last season.
