College of Charleston President Glenn McConnell has ordered a second investigation of embattled basketball coach Doug Wojcik based on new allegations of a physical confrontation with a player and verbal abuse of athletic department staff. One of the allegations in the new report includes a physical confrontation between Wojcik and former Cougar guard Trevonte Dixon, which occurred during a game in the 2012-13 season, multiple sources told The Post and Courier. A source also said a video of the confrontation between Wojcik and Dixon is part of the report. Dixon transferred to Francis Marion following the 2012-13 season. The McConnell probe follows a previous investigation that produced a 50-page report exposing dozens of allegations of Wojcik lashing out at players with obscenities, personal attacks and physical threats. The original report was compiled with input from 12 players, 10 of them anonymous and obtained by The Post and Courier earlier this month. College Athletic Director Joe Hull told players during a meeting on June 30 that he was going to fire Wojcik. However, outgoing president George Benson overruled Hull and suspended Wojcik without pay for the month of August and ordered him to undergo mandatory counseling, multiple sources confirmed. The new investigation is an attempt to find cause to fire Wojcik, despite the agreement that was reached between Benson and the coach, according to sources.
