RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Virginia Commonwealth University has hired a new volleyball coach months after the previous coach claimed he was let go because he was gay.

The university picked Jody Rogers to fill the position. She led the University of Indianapolis to the Division Two Final Four this past season

Rogers replaces James Finley whose contract was not renewed last year. Finley claimed he was discriminated against because he is openly gay.

However, the university conducted an investigation after the allegations surfaced which found there was no evidence of discrimination.
