• Gateway HS boys basketball coach resigns amid charges

    TRAFFORD, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A prominent Western Pennsylvania high school basketball coach has resigned after police charged him with making threats and harassing a neighbor.

    According to Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE, Gateway coach Mitch Adams resigned Sunday. Adams led the team to championships in 2011 and 2012, and had been a basketball coach at the school for nine years.

    The 56-year-old Adams told TribLIVE he's innocent, but he didn't want the issue to become a distraction for the school and the team.

    Adams was charged by Trafford police on Aug. 11 over an incident that occurred near his home on July 13. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 23.

    Gateway athletic director Randy Rovesti said the school thanks Adams for his years of service, and wishes him well.
