|A pretrial conference is planned in the case of a former college women's basketball coach accused of groping a player.
The session has been scheduled for Tuesday morning in a Kenton County court for Bryce McKey. McKey's attorney has entered a not-guilty plea for him on a charge of third-degree sexual abuse, a misdemeanor.
Hours after his arraignment Aug. 14, the University of Maryland announced that he had resigned as an assistant women's basketball coach.
According to a sworn affidavit, a player McKey coached as an assistant at Xavier said McKey asked her to come to his home in Covington, Kentucky, in May. She said during the evening, he repeatedly touched her inappropriately.
McKey has been ordered to stay away from her, and from Xavier's campus and events.
