Kean University Dismisses Women’s Basketball Coach

Facebook image

Kean University has removed the coach of the school’s powerhouse women’s basketball team amid an NCAA probe into possible wrongdoing in the program.

The university told The Star-Ledger on Thursday that Michele Sharp had been reassigned to another job in the athletics department. But the newspaper reported university officials would not say why. A man who answered her phone number on Thursday said she was not available and he would not comment.

The school’s sports information director did not immediately return a call or email from The Associated Press on Thursday night.

In September, the NCAA informed the school of five possible rule violations, including four related to “extra benefits” for the women’s basketball team.
