Vermont women's basketball coach resigns amid investigation

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) The University of Vermont's head women's basketball coach has resigned after two seasons.

Chris Day's resignation comes after an investigation this month concerning his verbal conduct. Two players have been granted releases from the university since the program review.

Day told the Burlington Free Press he couldn't discuss the investigation.

Day said in a statement Thursday he was "grateful" for his time at the university but he plans to move his family back to the Philadelphia area. Day had served as the University of Pennsylvania assistant women's basketball coach before joining UVM in 2016.

UVM Athletic Director Jeff Schulman thanked Day for his "energy and commitment" to the program.

Assistant head coach Alisa Kresge has been appointed interim head coach through next season.
