University of Nevada, Reno Hires Embattled Ex-UC Berkeley Coach Accused of Sexually Assaulting Sports Reporter

A University of California, Berkeley assistant basketball coach who resigned following sexual harassment allegations from a reporter has been hired by another Division I team. 

The University of Nevada, Reno, said Friday it has hired Yann Hufnagel as assistant coach for the Wolf Pack. 

Hufnagel resigned from UC Berkeley on Thursday, a day before the results of his appeal of UC Berkeley's attempt to fire him were to be released. 

The allegations against Hufnagel were among many recent high-profile sexual harassment cases at UC Berkeley that have raised questions over top officials' handling of them. 

Other cases involved a renowned astronomy professor, a vice chancellor and the law school dean. 

Officials are also conducting a review into whether men's head basketball coach Cuonzo Martin handled the situation correctly.
