MADRID (AP) – The Syracuse women’s basketball coach, who resigned after players accused him of bullying, has been hired by a professional club in Spain.

Leganés, a Madrid club, announced the signing of Quentin Hillsman on Wednesday, barely a month after he resigned as part of an external review of his program.

He left Syracuse after 15 seasons when he was accused by former players and staff of threats, bullying and unsolicited physical contact. Syracuse let 12 players enter the transfer portal after the season.

Two former players were defending Hillsman on social media as new allegations surfaced.


“Having coach Q is a privilege for this club,” said Leganés club president José Ramos.

Leganés will open the league season in Zaragoza on September 25th.
