Vermont coach Chris Day resigns amid investigation

BURLINGTON, Vt. -- Vermont's 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.

He said in a statement Thursday that he was "grateful" for his time at the university and plans to move his family back to the Philadelphia area. Day had served as Penn's assistant women's basketball coach before joining Vermont in 2016.

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

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