EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) -A Hofstra assistant football coach was suspended with pay by the university after being charged with misdemeanor assault.
Assistant defensive backs coach Kahmal Roy was charged Monday for his part in a fight that broke out after a recreation league touch-football game.
The 28-year-old Roy punched 57-year-old Stephen Malone as they were shaking hands after a game Sunday, Nassau County police said.
Roy said through a spokesman that Malone started the fight by spitting on him. Malone denies spitting and tells Newsday that he suffered a broken face bone and a knee injury.
Hofstra suspended Roy on Tuesday. Last season was his first as an assistant coach. He was a standout wide receiver at Hofstra from 1998 to 2001.
