Nebraska associate head coach Chuck Love was suspended with pay this week due to a personnel matter. On the same day of that announcement was the team also removing starting guard Ashley Scoggin from the roster.
Love and Scoggin were both absent from Thursday’s road game against Penn State.
Head coach Amy Williams will not confirm why or if those decisions are connected. Scoggin is a big loss as she is the team’s leader in three-point shots.
Williams addressed the media after a win at home Sunday.
“It’s been a challenging few days but for our team to really come together and just stay together and compete and have a tough fought win today I couldn’t be more proud,” Williams said.
“Our team has just leaned on each other and I’m very proud of the way they’ve kind of leaned into each other and found a way to embrace, we say all the time we do hard things.”
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln would not comment on Love’s suspension, only saying it’s a personnel matter.
A reporter pressed Williams: “We got two separate news releases yesterday, are those two things connected,” he asked.
“That’s something that I can’t answer at this time but certainly something that we are just going to focus on our current team,” Williams responded.
The husband and father was suspended with pay.
