A girls’ high school basketball coach in Mississippi has resigned after being accused of biting a player in the face.

Leake County Sheriff Greg Waggoner says Leake Academy coach Doyle Wolverton is accused of biting the unnamed player during a timeout in a Nov. 12 game in Marion County.

The player was brought to a hospital emergency room in Carthage after the team returned, and hospital employees called the sheriff’s office because the injury allegedly stemmed from an assault. A police report obtained by WJTV-TV states a deputy took pictures of the bite mark.

Waggoner says the family is declining to press charges.

The Neshoba Democrat reports Wolverton coached at Leake Academy in Madden for 38 years and has a record of more than 1,200 career wins.
