 COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - College of Charleston basketball players say they agreed with the dismissal of men's coach Doug Wojcik after allegations of verbal abuse and they ''forgive'' him.
The school released a statement Wednesday saying it was from the members of the Cougars men's basketball team this season. Wojcik was fired by school President Glenn McConnell on Tuesday for cause.
Wojcik, 50, has apologized to those he hurt emotionally or offended.
The players' statement said while the past few weeks were difficult, they feel they are closer as a team.
Wojcik's attorney Scott Tompsett did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press. He had said in a statement the school became so desperate to fire the coach, it had basketball players sign sworn affidavits which he believes contain ''materially false statements.''
