Jennifer Roos, the head women’s basketball coach at Bowling Green State University, addressed Ali Mann’s resignation after Thursday’s game with Buffalo.
Mann, a former BGSU player who was in her first season as an assistant coach for the Falcons, resigned her position on Feb. 20 after she confirmed a consensual relationship with a student in the basketball program.
‘‘This is an incident that is a very emotional and sensitive issue because it has affected the university, it’s affected all individuals within the program ranging from players, parents, other students who work with our program, and BGSU personnel,’’ Roos said. ‘‘The administration and I have communicated with and are still in communication with those groups.
‘‘This really has been an opportunity for everyone to reflect and learn and honestly start to heal from this incident.’’
Due to privacy concerns, Roos said she could not discuss anything which involves students and their welfare.
‘‘I’ll be very limited in regards to what I can discuss about other specifics due to the privacy rights of those involved.’’
Roos said she has spoken to and texted Mann a couple of times since her resignation, but she would not comment on what the two talked about.
