He was involved in a domestic incident with a woman, who the police say he was intimate with, at a team hotel near Union Square on Saturday night. She was transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

“We are aware of the report of allegations related to Lamont Smith,” the University of San Diego said in a statement. “We have very few details at the time, but we will be gathering information and will be commencing an investigation into the matter.”

Smith, who previously played for the school, is in his third season as the Toreros head coach. The team is 18-12 this season, including a 64-61 win over the University of San Francisco Dons.

Smith has been released on $115,000 bail.

This is Smith’s first head coaching job. He was an assistant coach for numerous teams from 1999 through 2015.
