A girls basketball coach at a Pennsylvania high school has been cited for disorderly conduct after scuffling with the father of one of his players.

Ken Shankweiler resigned as coach of the Salisbury High School basketball team following Saturday's confrontation.

Shankweiler acknowledged going into the stands during a home loss to Wilson Area High School and confronting John Hrebik, father of standout junior Caitlin Hrebik.

Police say the confrontation at the school near Allentown resulted from a disagreement over "game management and strategy."

Shankweiler was ejected from the game, which Salisbury lost 62-19.
