Information on Holy Cross Women’s Basketball

January 14th, 2014 by 

Message to Campus Community:

Holy Cross women’s basketball Coach Bill Gibbons will be returning to his position as head coach, effective today.

Coach Gibbons had voluntarily stepped aside in October of last year, after a former student filed a lawsuit claiming verbal and physical abuse while she was a member of the team. After a thorough review, the College has concluded that there is no reason for Coach Gibbons’ continued absence from the team. The College believes the lawsuit’s allegations have no legal merit.

Over a 29-year span, Coach Gibbons has amassed an impressive track record. That’s why so many players, parents, and alumni support him and the College’s women’s basketball program. We are focused now on completing the season and the academic year as a team and a community.

Coach Gibbons will be back at the Hart Center for the team’s contest against Patriot League rival Army on Wednesday, January 15 at 7 p.m. For more information on the Holy Cross women’s basketball team, which currently boasts a 11-4 record and is tied for second  place in league play, visit http://goholycross.com/sports/w-baskbl/index

The College is grateful to Coach Ann McInerney for leading the team while Coach Gibbons voluntarily stepped aside. She is highly valued and essential to the program and to the College.  She will be resuming her position as associate head coach.

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.

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 our students or employees should be directed to the Office of Public Affairs at 508-793-2419.
