COVINGTON, Ky. -- A judge found the former Xavier University women's basketball coach accused of sexually abusing a player not guilty Monday.

Police charged Bryce McKey with one count of third-degree sexual abuse in August after they said he groped a Xavier student on the evening of May 2 in his Covington home.

A judge also found McKey not guilty Monday on a charge related to providing alcohol to an underage woman.

McKey resigned from his position at Xavier before accusations were made against him in August.

The University of Maryland later hired him, but McKey soon resigned from that position after the school suspended him.

The school released a statement in August with head women's coach Brenda Frese saying McKey resigned to "tend to his personal matters."
