Another allegation from Hermann's past came up at a news conference after Rutgers announced her hiring.
In 1997, a jury awarded $150,000 to a former Tennessee assistant coach who claimed that she was fired because she was pregnant.
To make her case, the former assistant coach, Ginger Hineline, gave a copy of her wedding video to The Star-Ledger.
"I hope it's good tonight," Hermann, then a bridesmaid at the wedding, says in the video. "Because I know you've been waiting for a while, but I hope it's not too good, because I don't want you to come back February with any surprises, you know, the office and all, and it would be hard to have a baby in there."
Asked about the video at a news conference this month, Hermann appeared taken aback.
"There's a video?" she asked. "I'm sorry, did you say there's a video? There's no video, trust me."
According to The Star-Ledger report, Hermann told the newspaper that Hineline was fired because of performance issues. She told the newspaper she could not recall attending Hineline's wedding and said that because she was a witness at the 1997 trial, she would not have been permitted in the courtroom when the wedding video was played.
"On the matter of the litigation, that issue was addressed many years ago and was known to Rutgers. I am sorry for the confusion I created by misspeaking about the existence of a video tape," Hermann said Monday. "It was recorded nearly 20 years ago and I simply did not recall the video tape until I saw it in media reports."
Obiala told CNN that she and her former teammates aren't trying to create problems for Hermann.
"We weren't trying to cause any waves. Honestly, I don't think any of us expected it to get to this point," she said. "Hopefully, at this point Julie's changed, and she's realized what a program needs."
The former players, Obiala said, have moved forward.
"Once the (athletic) department acknowledged our letter and gave us the opportunity to speak with her, and she chose not to coach for us anymore, we all accepted it. We said our piece. We've moved on," she said. "We're moms, we're career women, and we're happy."
