According to multiple reports, Albany head men’s basketball coach Dwayne Killings is expected to be arraigned in a Kentucky court on Monday on an assault charge. This stems from an incident that took place in the locker room back in November 2021, when he was accused of assaulting one of his players before a game vs Eastern Illinois at the Eastern Kentucky Invitational.
Killings served a 5-game suspension earlier this year, and was fined $25,000 as a result of a university investigation.
Albany officials released the following statement:
“The University is aware of the complaint recently filed in Kentucky. The university’s understanding is that the underlying allegation is substantively the same information reported to the university in February 2022, which triggered UAlbany’s personnel investigation and resulted in Coach Killings serving a five-game suspension and paying a $25,000 fine last year. At this time, the university is not aware of any additional information that would result in a change in Coach Killings’ status. Should additional information become available, the University will respond appropriately.”
According to court documents, Killings is scheduled to be arraigned Monday at 9 a.m. at Madison County (Ky.) District Court on a charge of 4th degree assault with no visible injury, a Class A misdemeanor.
Albany is currently 6-15 (1-5 America East), and does not play again until Wednesday 1/25 when they travel to New Hampshire.
