Bench trial for former Ohio basketball coach rescheduled

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) – A bench trial for a former Ohio college women’s basketball coach accused of groping a player in northern Kentucky has been rescheduled.

The trial of former Xavier University assistant women’s basketball coach Brian McKey had been set to start Monday in a Kenton County court in Covington, Kentucky. Court officials say it was rescheduled Monday and is now set to begin April 11.

McKey’s attorney earlier entered a not guilty plea for McKey on a misdemeanor charge of third-degree sexual assault.

A player that McKey coached at Xavier says he invited her to come to his Covington home and touched her inappropriately. She says he tried to kiss her, but she pushed him away and left.

McKey had become a University of Maryland assistant, but resigned after the allegation surfaced.
