Men's Assistant Basketball Coach has been charged after punching a man who later died, according to CBS.

Jones, who has been on Wake Forest head coach Danny Manning's staff since May 2017, reportedly turned himself in to police Thursday morning while accompanied by a lawyer.

Jones is accused of punching 35-year-old, Sandor Szabo, who is from Florida, and was in NY for a wedding in Long Island.

He was taken to a hospital and died on Tuesday.

A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that Szabo may have been drunkenly knocking on vehicle windows before Jones allegedly confronted him.

Security camera video shows Jones then leaving the area in a white SUV, police said.

He now coaches at Wake Forest University. He was ordered to return to court on October 2. His family says he was visiting NY from Boca Raton, Florida, for a wedding. The coach's next court appearance is scheduled for October 2, the Queens District Attorney's office said.

Prior to coming to Wake Forest, Jones coached at Central Florida, VCU and Florida Gulf Coast.

According to Jones's bio at Wake Forest's sports website, he is a Philadelphia native who attended Arkansas Tech and began his basketball coaching career in Washington, D.C., with an AAU squad named Team Takeover.

Szabo, also 35, was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his company, at What If Media Group, said.

"He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring", the company said in a Facebook post. "He was a really good person". The Jones family sends their deepest condolences and sympathies to the Szabo family.

"We're going to say one thing and that's all".
