AUSTIN (KXAN) - University of Texas women's track coach Bev Kearney resigned Saturday and acknowledged in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman that she had an intimate relationship with an athlete in her program in 2002.
Kearney had been placed on paid leave in November as university officials investigated unspecified issues within the program. In a statement released Saturday night, university officials said the relationship was first reported to the school in October and the school was taking measures to fire Kearney before she resigned.
Neither Kearney nor the university identified the former Texas athlete. Kearney told the newspaper it was a "consensual intimate relationship" that began in July 2002 and ended later that year.
Kearney didn't immediately return a telephone message left at her home late Saturday night.
