NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — Central Connecticut men’s basketball coach Donyell Marshall is the subject of a school investigation, but officials there will not say what is being investigated.

Marshall and assistant coach Anthony Anderson were not allowed to coach in Thursday’s exhibition game against Nyack.

The school says they were unavailable due to a “confidential personnel matter currently under investigation by the university.”

The Hartford Courant reports the two men had been involved in a verbal altercation this week.

Marshall did not immediately respond Friday to messages seeking comment.

Marshall, who starred at UConn and played 15 seasons in the NBA, was hired as CCSU’s coach in April, 2016, and guided the team to a 6-23 record in his first season.

Central beat Nyack 65-62, under assistant coaches Mike Witcoskie and Anthony Ross.
