UNC rowing head coach resigns amid Title IX investigation

Sarah Haney’s resignation came five days after The Daily Tar Heel obtained, through an anonymous source close to the program, an email from athletic director Bubba Cunningham that confirmed the existence of a University Title IX office investigation into the rowing program. The investigation follows complaints made by student-athletes against Haney, the head coach since 2002, and assistant head coach Anthony Brock, including alleged emotional abuse, injury negligence and sexual harassment, according to the person close to the program and a group of five current rowers, all of whom were granted anonymity by the DTH.

UNC rowing uses focus, confidence in guiding its way to a win-filled weekend

This past weekend, the UNC rowing team had a strong showing at the Sunshine State Invitational in Sarasota, Florida. Competing against seven other schools, including conference foes Clemson and Miami in the 2,000-meter events, the Tar Heels earned gold in the 3V8 race and placed second in two other fixtures. As the end of the season draws near, the team has a goal of coming in sixth place in this year's ACC Championship - which is certainly a possibility, having beaten both Clemson and Miami in competitions over the weekend.
