UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. (WTAJ) — A former Penn State fencing assistant coach, who was placed on administrative leave last fall in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations, is no longer with the university, according to a Penn State spokesperson.

The Daily Collegian was the first to report the story Tuesday.

Although it is not known when the assistant coach, George Abashidze, left the university — and the spokesperson declined to divulge the exact date of his departure — Penn State posted a job ad for Abashidze’s position March 29. He was placed on administrative leave no later than Sept. 13 of last year.
