New Rutgers University athletic director comes out

Newly hired Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann comes out as gay: "I'm really blessed to have a wonderful family, and we're excited to become part of the Rutgers community."

The last sentence of Hermann's 453-word bio on Rutgers' official website says: "Hermann and her partner Dr. Leslie Danehy are the proud parents of a seven-year-old son, Aidan."

Hermann is one of a few known athletic directors in Division I who has publicly acknowledged she is gay. She is one of only three current female ADs at the FBS level.
