University Coach Resigns

August 15th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The University of Maryland said Friday that an assistant women's basketball coach resigned, following his suspension after a player he coached at Xavier University accused him of groping her. The school released a statement from head women's coach Brenda Frese about Bryce McKey, hours after his arraignment in northern Kentucky"It is best that Bryce tend to his personal matters and step away from coaching at this time," Frese said. She had announced his hiring for her staff in April, after he served four years as an assistant coach at Xavier. Earlier Friday, a Kenton County, Kentucky, prosecutor said McKey's attorney entered a not-guilty plea for him on a charge of third-degree sexual abuse, a misdemeanor. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Sept. 8. McKey's attorney, Harry Hellings of Covington, said they couldn't say much about the case yet without knowing more about the allegations. "We haven't seen anything that substantiates the charges," Hellings said. A phone message was left at the office of McKey, who didn't attend Friday's hearing
