Wednesday, October 16, 2013 – 4 p.m.

Holy Cross women’s basketball head coach Bill Gibbons announced to his team this afternoon that he has voluntarily offered to step back from his coaching duties while the College reviews claims in the lawsuit filed by a former student and member of the basketball team. His assistant coaches will now assume all coaching duties. The College said that while the situation is under review, Coach Gibbons will be on administrative leave with pay.

Message to Campus Community:

As you may know from media coverage this morning, a lawsuit has been filed by a former Holy Cross student against Holy Cross and the College’s head women’s basketball coach. The student claims verbal and physical abuse while she was a member of the team. The lawsuit also claims that Holy Cross did not sufficiently investigate the claims.

We received the lawsuit yesterday afternoon, and we are in the process of reviewing the claims.

The former student brought her concern to the College this summer, and we investigated at that time. The lawsuit received yesterday includes a series of new allegations and we will now bring in outside counsel to review those allegations.

All members of the College Community should know that the physical, mental and emotional well-being of all our students is the highest priority at Holy Cross.

We will continue to keep you informed about developments related to this situation.

Because of interest from members of the media in the matter, we remind you that all press inquiries regarding College policy or requests for information related to students or employees should be directed to the Office of Public Affairs at 508-793-2419. Thank you for your cooperation.

For additional information, please contact the Office of Public Affairs at 508-793-2419.
