The 55-year-old Kearney was among the highest-profile women's track coaches in the country and the university was planning to give her a raise before she was suspended. Kearney was inducted into the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2007. She's also a member of the International Women's Sports Hall of Fame.

In her interview with the Statesman, Kearney said she didn't know why the relationship resurfaced a decade after it ended.

"You destroy yourself. You start questioning how could you make such a judgment," she said. "How could you make such an error after all the years? You can get consumed (by it) ... I didn't commit a crime, but I displayed poor judgment."
