BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Former Rhode Island star and international coach Lazare Adingono has resigned as assistant coach of the Canisius men's basketball team, two months after being arrested on charges of using a belt to beat his 4-year-old son.
Harvey Siegel, Adingono's attorney, said Thursday his client resigned to focus his attention on family issues. Adingono had been on leave from the team since late February.
He was in his third season at Canisius and last year coached the Cameroon national basketball team in the Olympic qualifying tournament last year.
Adingono was arrested on Feb. 10 on a felony charge of second-degree assault and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child. The case is scheduled to be presented to a grand jury.
