Georgetown Women's Basketball Coach Resigns

The women's basketball coach at Georgetown University has resigned after allegations he verbally abused players.

Keith Brown is stepping down just a week after being placed on administrative leave by school officials. Several players had accused Brown of using inappropriate language and acting unprofessionally. ABC7 reportedly obtained audio recordings of the incidents.

A Georgetown University spokesperson says in a statement that "actions inconsistent with our values have no place in our community."

An assistant coach, who had also been placed on leave, was re-instated following the investigation.

The season is scheduled to start next month.
