COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A bench trial has been set for a former Ohio college women’s basketball coach accused of groping a player in northern Kentucky.

The Cincinnati Enquirer ( ) reports court records show the trial of former Xavier University assistant women’s basketball coach Brian McKey is expected to start March 21 in Kenton County.

McKey’s attorney earlier entered a not-guilty plea for the 29-year-old on a misdemeanor charge of third-degree sexual assault.

A player that he coached at Xavier says he invited her to come to his Covington, Kentucky, home and touched her inappropriately. She says he tried to kiss her, but she pushed him away and left.

He had become a University of Maryland assistant, but resigned after the allegation surfaced.
