Omaha Police say Creighton Prep High School football coach Chris Nizzi hit a 17-year-old girl early Saturday morning, just hours after the Junior Jays won their semifinal game in the Class A state football playoffs. Nizzi, the Junior Jays’ head coach for four years, resigned as football coach and school counselor Sunday. Officers cited Nizzi on suspicion of misdemeanor assault.
When Nizzi got home following the game, early Saturday morning, he noticed his 16 year old son in a car across the street from his house with the 17 year old girl. Nizzi approached the car, asked the girl her name and then punched her on the right side of her face. The girl told investigators that Nizzi said “This will not happen again.”
