Milburn NJ July 7 2010 The Milburn Police Department charged the former Seton Hall coach, Bobby Gonzalez with shoplifting and criminal mischief Monday for the alleged theft of a $1,395 men’s satchel from the Polo Ralph Lauren store in the Short Hills Mall.
The police say the satchel was taken out of the store June 29, but Gerry Krovatin, Mr. Gonzalez’s attorney, said the incident was “a misunderstanding and a series of miscommunications.”
Mr. Gonzalez, who also formerly coached Manhattan, was fired in March, the day after one of his Seton Hall players was ejected from what would be the Pirates’ last game of the season for punching an opposing player below the belt.
The coach himself was assessed his seventh technical foul of the year for arguing.
He is suing the university, alleging breach of contract.
