BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston University is responding to allegations concerning their women's basketball coach.

According to the Boston Globe, four women left the team in this academic year alone. They're all claiming some sort of emotional abuse at the hands of coach Kelly Greenberg.

The university is looking into the allegations.

"We have been made aware of issues and concerns about Coach Greenberg, and we're taking a very serious look at them from both inside and outside of athletics," the school said in a statement.

This isn't the first time that Greenberg has faced these kinds of allegations.

Seven years ago, players accused her of making similar personal attacks.
