Ex-DePaul Softball Coach Allegedly Punched Assistant

Brock Fritz Headshot

DePaul University is facing allegations of covering up abuse by former softball coach Eugene Lenti.

The Associated Press reported last week that Lenti, who is currently an Auburn assistant coach, punched one of his DePaul assistants in the face and verbally abused his players. The AP cited a lawsuit that was filed in Cook County Circuit court by Jenny Conviser on April 16.

Conviser, who worked with DePaul athletes for 13 years as a mental health doctor, is suing the Chicago, Ill., university for wrongful termination and defaming her reputation. The lawsuit alleges that Lenti wasn’t punished because his sister, Jean Lenti Ponsetto, is DePaul’s athletic director.
