The Cal Golden Bears men’s basketball team has fired assistant coach Yann Hufnagel for violating the school’s anti-sexual harassment policy, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.


The actual allegations against Hufnagel aren’t known, but in a statement the athletic department said he “has been relieved of his duties pending the outcome of the termination process.” Hufnagel had been an assistant for head coach Cuonzo Martin for two seasons.

Hufnagel called the accusation a “fruitless claim” today:
