WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Bill Gibbons has returned to his position as Holy Cross women's basketball coach, the school announced on its website Tuesday.

Gibbons had voluntarily stepped aside in October after a former student filed a lawsuit claiming verbal and physical abuse while she was a member of the team. The school believed the lawsuit's allegations had no legal merit after a thorough review.

The suit said Gibbons had yanked and pulled on the player's shirt collar, shook her by the shoulder and struck her on the back during a game, leaving a handprint.

Gibbons will coach the Crusaders (11-4) on Wednesday against Army. He has 533 wins in 28 seasons and has led the team to 11 Patriot League championships.
