UConn assistant coach charged in domestic incident

WINDHAM, Conn. -- Connecticut suspended assistant football coach Terry Richardson on Wednesday after he was arrested on domestic violence charges.

Richardson is charged with risk of injury to a minor and second-degree assault, both felonies, police said.

Willimantic Police Sgt. Joe Yarchak said police were called to Richardson's home early Wednesday morning to handle a family dispute.

The incident involved a child in the home, who suffered minor injuries, police said.

A team spokesman said the school placed Richardson, UConn's running backs coach, on paid administrative leave effectively immediately pending the outcome of his case.

Richardson, who lives with his wife and four children, was arraigned in Danielson Superior Court and released on a $10,000 bond.

Messages seeking comment were left with Richardson's attorney.

Richardson is due in court April 5.
