John O’Connor resigns from Holy Family basketball coach position

    John O’Connor, Holy Family University’s basketball coach, has reportedly resigned. The decision came after former player Matt Kravchuk refused O’Connor’s on-air apology yesterday on Good Morning America.

    Kravchuck accused O’Connor of assault after the player sustained a bloody nose and wrist injury in what the coach said was a drill to boost the team’s aggression. The district attorney announced yesterday no charges will be filed against O’Connor.

    No announcement has been posted on the university’s website.
