The head coach of the Conner High School softball team has quit amid accusations she tried to hurt a player with a pitching machine.

Kristin Koors abruptly resigned amid the accusations earlier this week, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Two other softball coaches resigned in support of Koors, according to a Boone County Schools spokesperson.

An investigation into the alleged March 23 incident is underway.

Koors has not been charged with any crime at this point.  

In a Boone County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the student claimed Koors intentionally aimed a pitching machine in her direction, hitting her with a ball.

The school district released the following statement Friday:  

"A meeting was held last night with the students and Principal Tim Hitzfield.  They’ve brought on an interim coach so that the team can finish their season.  And the search for a permanent coach is ongoing.  Also, two other coaches for that team also resigned in support of Kristin Koors."
