Carthage, Miss. • A girls' high school basketball coach in Mississippi has resigned after being accused of biting a player in the face.
Leake County Sheriff Greg Waggoner says Leake Academy coach Doyle Wolverton is accused of biting the unnamed player during a timeout in a Nov. 12 game in Marion County.
The player was brought to a hospital emergency room in Carthage after the team returned, and hospital employees called the sheriff's office because the injury allegedly stemmed from an assault. A police report obtained by WJTV-TV states a deputy took pictures of the bite mark.
