Mike Oliver, the longtime boys basketball coach at Curie, has been removed from his position at the school according to Chicago Public Schools.
“[Oliver] was removed from his position following an allegation of a physical altercation with a student,” CPS spokesperson Michael Passman said in a statement. “The CPS Office of Student Protections and Title IX is investigating the allegation and ensuring supports are available to the student.”
The top-ranked Condors are 21-1 this season and have not lost to a school in Illinois. They won the prestigious Pontiac Holiday Tournament in late December. Curie are the defending city champs and have won the city title six times under Oliver.
