Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

Noticeably absent on the Bearcat bench Sunday was assistant coach Mark Hsu.

He was prominently featured in retired Judge Judith Kaye's 99-page audit of the program, named for assisting former player Malik Alvin pay his court fees after being arrested for stealing condoms at Wal-mart, and then again for helping Alvin fix a plagiarized school assignment.

Hsu did not travel with the team on their recent road trips, and after the game interim head coach Mark Macon was asked about his future with the program. Macon would only say that he could not answer those questions.

Following that press conference, the university released a statement.

"After consultation with America East commissioner Patrick Nero, interim director of athletics Jim Norris has determined that assistant coach Marc Hsu will not be coaching in practice or games until further notice."

Head coach Kevin Broadus was put on paid leave at the start of the season, and during the year, assistant coach Julius Allen was reassigned in the program for undisclosed reasons.
