COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - College of Charleston President Glenn McConnell has fired men's basketball coach Doug Wojcik.
The move Tuesday comes more than a month after the school said it was investigating Wojcik, who players, assistant coaches and staffers in the athletic department said he verbally abused them.
McConnell said in a statement that Wojcik's dismissal was immediate and for cause. He did not detail reasons for the move and said he and the school would have no further comments about it.
Wojcik came over from Tulsa two years ago. He led the Cougars to the Southern Conference tournament finals in his first year, but fell to 14-18 this past winter in College of Charleston's first in the Colonial Athletic Conference.
Messages left with Wojcik's attorney, Scott Tompsett, were not immediately returned.
