The husband of Stephanie V. Gaitley, the women's basketball coach at St. Joseph's University, resigned as an assistant coach with the team after last season amid allegations he had been sexually harassing one of the school's players. A university source told the Daily News that Francis P. Gaitley was asked to resign in May as the result of an investigation begun when a player accused him of harassing her for more than a year. At the time, the university said Frank Gaitley was resigning to pursue other business opportunities.

Stephanie Gaitley, who coached St. Joseph's University to a decade of success in women's basketball until a player accused her husband of sexual harassment, was fired yesterday. The player accused Gaitley of ignoring her when she told Gaitley about her husband's conduct and of retaliating by making comments about her to other players and by blocking her from becoming a team captain. University officials initially declined at a news conference yesterday to describe Gaitley's departure as a firing.

Harry Vanderslice preferred relative anonymity whenever he visited St. Joseph's Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse to cheer as his daughter, Stephanie Gaitley, coached the Hawks' women's basketball team. He'd sit high above the court, in the top row of Section 101, where he could observe Gaitley's strategic moves without much disturbance. Last night, though, his presence was sorely missed as the Hawks defeated Rhode Island, 68-49. "We love you Harry," read buttons worn by members of the Vanderslice family in memory of the family patriarch, who died Jan. 26. The victory kept the Hawks (14-7 overall, 9-2 conference)

When six seniors from last season's St. Joseph's women's basketball program graduated, they took with them 72 percent of the team's scoring and 52 percent of the rebounding. But don't say the word rebuild on Hawk Hill, especially to coach Stephanie Gaitley. "This team has the best chemistry of any of the previous four I've had here, so that's saying a lot," Gaitley said. "They remind me of my last team at Richmond, when there weren't a lot of expectations for us and we won the Colonial crown.

A St. Joseph's University official said the school is conducting an investigation into allegations that two more women's basketball players were sexually and verbally harassed by former Hawks assistant coach Frank Gaitley. "What's going on is an internal fact-finding process concerning new allegations that were raised in a letter to the president of the university," said Joe Lunardi, the school's director of communications. "The intent is to have [the investigation] be expedient and decisive," Lunardi said.

Frank Gaitley was given a choice by St. Joseph's University in May: resign or be fired. That was the decision presented to Gaitley, an assistant coach for the women's basketball team, by the university after its internal investigation into allegations of sexual harassment made by a player on the team. Gaitley was an assistant to his wife, St. Joe's head coach Stephanie Gaitley. The revelation that Gaitley was forced out is included in a six-page document St. Joseph's filed Monday with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission in response to a sexual harassment complaint by the player, Cheryl Kulesa.

St. Joseph's University has begun an internal investigation into new sexual-harassment allegations against former assistant women's basketball coach Frank Gaitley, a school spokesman said. The investigation was prompted by an anonymous letter sent to the school's president, the Rev. Nicholas Rashford. The letter, dated Jan. 31, was sent to Rashford after the Daily News reported Jan. 18 that the university was named in a sexual-harassment complaint filed in September with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission by former St. Joe's player Cheryl Kulesa.

After months of controversy and questions about the future, St. Joseph's University named a women's head basketball coach yesterday and moved on to what it hopes is a brighter future. Reaching into the past, the university named Cindy Anderson, one of the school's top former players, to replace recently fired head coach Stephanie Gaitley. Anderson, 32, who was the head coach at Loyola College in Baltimore, becomes the first ex-Hawk to return as head coach. She takes over one of the city's best women's programs, but does so amid the team's most difficult period.

St. Joseph's University has placed women's head basketball coach Stephanie Gaitley on a paid leave of absence for the remainder of the season while the school deals with a sexual-harassment complaint filed against it by a former player. The school announced its action yesterday, 45 minutes before the women's team tipped off against Xavier University, and four days after a complaint filed with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission was reported in the Daily News. The complaint, which was filed in September, alleges that Gaitley's husband and former assistant coach, Frank Gaitley, had sexually harassed the player, Cheryl Kulesa, 21, of Clementon, N.J., while he was with the team and that Stephanie Gaitley retaliated against her for reporting her allegations to the university.

IT WAS a love fest from start to finish. Many former Monsignor Bonner High School basketball players, students and friends turned out Dec. 16 to pay homage to longtime Bonner basketball coach, Richard A. "Dick" Bernhart, on the occasion of his 75th birthday. The party was held in McGillicuddy's restaurant, in Upper Darby, and Dick was driven there from his home in Frostburg, Md., by a young friend, Taylor Betts. Three days later, Dick Bernhart was dead. He died in his home in Frostburg of natural causes, no doubt with the many accolades he heard at the party still ringing in his ears.

Jimmer Fredette became a one-name star in his senior season at BYU. Leading the country in scoring, at 28.5 points a game, helped, as did being on a team that spent the second half of the season ranked in the top 10. Yesterday, Fredette - uh, Jimmer - was selected the Associated Press' player of the year. The Cougars won the Mountain West Conference regular-season title and lost to San Diego State in the tournament final. A No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament, they lost to Florida in overtime in the round of 16 and finished 32-5.

There's a reason why guard formerly resembled a four-letter word in DC Gaitley's basketball world. Throughout his childhood, he played one-on-one against his brother, Dutch, and participated in the same kinds of drills, and he figured someday he would also be sniffing the rarified air available to those within a whisker of 6 foot, 10 inches. "I always wished I'd have a growth spurt and get up there close to my brother at, say, 6-8," Gaitley noted. "And, hopefully, I'm not finished yet. "On my [youth teams]

Temple's basketball team has added former Monmouth forward Dutch Gaitley, who has been granted a one-time transfer exception by the NCAA. Gaitley, a 6-9, 240-pounder, graduated after 3 years at Monmouth and is enrolled in graduate school at Temple. Gaitley informed Monmouth in the spring that he would not return. "Dutch is a hard-working, bright young man who will be a good addition to our program," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said in a statement. Gaitley averaged 2.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 88 games at Monmouth.

In one sense, there's little new for Villanova as it opens play against St. Francis, Pa., at 7 tonight in the NCAA women's basketball tournament. The Wildcats (25-5) have been first-round participants the last two seasons, and survived efficiently each time. They even traveled here last season, only to be short-circuited in the second round by eventual NCAA runner-up Oklahoma. However, coach Harry Perretta's squad is in a much different dimension this time around. The Wildcats are the No. 2 seed in the Mideast, the highest seeding ever for a Big Five school, and are in the unaccustomed role of strong favorites as they meet the No. 15 Red Flash (23-7)

Fittingly, the Friends Schools League championship game ended last night with Kelli Sawyer sitting high atop the shoulders of two fans among a mob of screaming supporters before being embraced by her coach. Sawyer, one of the area's top scorers with more than 2,000 career points, had 33 points and seven assists to lead Friends Select to its fourth straight league championship with a 60-52 win over Germantown Friends at Arcadia University in Glenside. "Kelly was part of the foundation of our program, and I wanted her to go out a winner," Falcons coach Jeffrey Rice said.

Stephanie Gaitley, the former women's basketball coach at St. Joseph's, was hired yesterday for the same position at Long Island University in Brooklyn. St. Joseph's fired Gaitley in April 2001 after she had been accused by former player Cheryl Kulesa of retaliation for filing a sexual-harassment complaint against Gaitley's husband, Frank, a former assistant coach. The university reported no finding on the retaliation charge, and it settled its differences with Stephanie Gaitley last year.

St. Joseph's record against Penn in women's basketball remained unblemished last night at the Palestra. The Hawks are 27-0 in the series after their 81-57 victory, which was Cindy Anderson-Griffin's first Big Five win as a coach. Anderson-Griffin, in her first year as St. Joseph's coach, also joined former Hawks coach Stephanie Gaitley and Penn's Kelly Greenberg as the only women to win City Series games as players and coaches. The three-time defending Big Five champions, who have won 13 consecutive City Series games, had built a 10-point lead at the midpoint of the first half.

Cindy Anderson's homecoming to St. Joseph's became official yesterday in a ceremony at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse as she was introduced as the sixth women's basketball head coach in Hawks history. Terms of Anderson's contract were not announced, but she is believed to be receiving a four-year deal with a base salary about $120,000, according to people familiar with the deal. Anderson, the head coach of Loyola of Maryland the last 2 1/2 seasons, with a 48-33 record, was a star point guard with the Hawks from 1988 to '92 under coach Jim Foster, who is now at Vanderbilt.
