Lamont Smith resigned from his position as head coach at San Diego on Wednesday night, the school announced.

Smith was arrested on Sunday, Feb. 25th, at the Oakland International Airport following a domestic dispute at the team hotel on the previous night. The woman that accused Smith was taken to the hospital, but charges were not filed in the case.

“After reviewing all the evidence and completing their investigation, the San Francisco District Attorney’s office has discharged the matter and has declined to file any charges against Coach Smith,” a statement from Gail Shifman, Smith’s attorney, released on Tuesday said.

The 42-year old Smith is a USD alum that had been back with the program since 2015. The Toreros went 18-13 this season, which is the most wins the program has had in a decade.

Smith had been on administrative leave since he was arrested.
