Coach Al Monaco

Former Williamsville South basketball coach Al Monaco is facing the first specific harassment allegation against him.

Buffalo Police officer Marvin Sanford claims that Monaco made repeated and demeaning statements about his son's weight. Monaco claims he doesn't recall ever making those remarks and that a meeting with Sanford was solely focused on the boy's playing time.

Another parent identified the younger Sanford as a team bully.

Monaco was recently removed from his post, though he is receiving strong public support.
