Albany coach Dwayne Killings is being investigated over an allegation that he struck one of his players earlier this season, multiple reports said Monday.

Stadium reported that Killings is said to have hit a player in November, and the player (who has not been identified) reported it to administrators late in the season. Killings reportedly claimed it was accidental.

The university did not respond to requests for comment from a local news station.

Killings, 40, just completed his first season as the Great Danes’ coach after stints as an assistant coach at Boston University, Temple, UConn and Marquette. He replaced Will Brown, who had coached the program for 20 seasons.

Albany went 13-18 (9-9 America East) in Killings’ first season.
