Holy Family coach steps down
O'Connor resigns following conflict with former player
PHILADELPHIA -- Holy Family men’s basketball coach John O’Connor has resigned following his conflict with former player Matt Kravchuk.
Holy Family forward Sam Mushman tells the Associated Press that O’Connor told the team on Thursday he would step down.
The decision came after O’Connor learned he will not face criminal charges from the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.
Mushman says the team is upset that O’Connor quit and they supported their beleaguered coach.
A Holy Family spokesman and O’Connor’s lawyer both declined comment.
O’Connor apologized to Kravchuk when they appeared Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” On the morning show, O’Connor apologized. Kravchuk did not accept it.
