OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former Omaha high school football coach won’t be prosecuted on allegations that he struck his son and a girl last fall.

Former Creighton Prep coach Chris Nizzi’s case was dismissed Thursday. City prosecutor David Smalheiser says Nizzi accepted responsibility for his actions and participated in a comprehensive diversion program.

The 17-year-old girl told police that she and Nizzi’s 16-year-old son were parked near the Nizzi home about 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 15 when Nizzi arrived home and soon confronted her about hanging out with his son. She told officers that Nizzi used a fist to strike her face. The boy told officers that his father backhanded him.

Nizzi resigned soon after the incident and has since found work at Boys Town.
