H.S. Wrestling Coach Resigns After Biting Player

The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports a Pennsylvania high school wrestling coach has chosen to resign, rather than face criminal charges for biting one of his players.

Mike Marshall of Central Cambria High reportedly bit the wrestler on the upper thigh during a practice back on January 21. Police say the chomp caused bruising but did not draw blood. The unidentified wrestler said he wouldn’t press charges if Marshall resigned from his coaching position.

Marshall is also a probation officer for the Cambria County Department of Juvenile Probation. So, maybe he was just getting carried away with McGruff’s plea to “take a bite out of crime.” Meanwhile, Marv Albert has volunteered to do play-by-play for the Pa. state wrestling finals.
