Doyle Wolverton, the nation's second-winningest girls basketball coach, has resigned from his position at Leake Academy (Madden, Miss.) after he allegedly bit one of his players during a game last week.“I have no comment on any of that,” Wolverton said Monday. “It’s all still being … I can’t say anything right now.”An incident report filed by the father of the player alleges that Wolverton grabbed the player by the shirt and then bit her on the right side of the face. Apparently, Wolverton was upset at her for making a bad play.After the game, the player's father took her to the emergency room, where staff observed a "bruised bite mark on the lower right side of her face."The school's headmaster, the girl's father, and police were reluctant to comment on the matter as of Monday. An investigation has been launched to get to the bottom of the matter.Wolverton currently ranks second  nationally in wins by a high school girls basketball coach (he trails Leta Andrews, who is still coaching  in Texas and has 1,375 career wins). He entered the season with 1,245 victories (against 181 losses) in his tenure at Leake Academy, which began in 1975.Via USA TODAY
