If that compassion is universal, then it is truly admirable. Too often in these situations people tend to be conditionally compassionate. If you would take the exact same stance if it was a coach from another conference (Rick Pitino), a professional coach or athlete (Tiger Woods), a celebrity (too many to mention), a politician (Bill Clinton, Newt Gringrich), a religious leader (Jim Baker) or anyone else who were involved in an embarassing sex scandal brought about by their lack of self control than more power to you.
For most people the amount of compassion they have for public figures is directly correlated to how much they like or respect them.

The game changer is that he hired her as an employee. Now the university has significant legal exposure if(when) things go south for a huge sexual harassment suit. It's a whole lot harder to forgive a coach for putting the school in that position than if he was just fooling around on the side.
They can't fire her. If they keep him around they basically are condoning the situation, which makes the legal exposure that much greater.
They have to fire him.
