Charleston, SC, United States (4E Sports) – College of Charleston officials are expected to hand down a decision Friday whether to fire or suspend basketball coach Doug Wojcik for alleged verbal abuse of players.

They met throughout the day Wednesday after putting Wojcik in the radar for the past few weeks.

Charleston Cougar players who thrived under former coach Bobby Cremins’ more laid-back approach didn’t react well to Wojcik’s rigid style.

Wojcik, 50, posted a 38-29 in two seasons since arriving at Charleston.

He has three years left on a five-year guaranteed deal that pays more than $400,000 per season.

Wojcik was previously the head coach at Tulsa, where he compiled a 140-92 mark in seven seasons but failed to make the NCAA Tournament.

He was fired on March 2012 for what was described as a business decision by then-athletic director Ross Parmley after attendance fell 18 percent.
