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

Authorities say Jones punched 35-year-old Sabor Szabo in the face early Sunday morning in Queens after the tourist banged on Jones' vehicle.

Among the cars Szabo allegedly approached was one driven by Jones, which led to their confrontation.

He also spent time as an assistant coach at UCF, VCU and Florida Gulf Coast going back to 2013.

According to CBS News New York, the blow was so hard, Szabo fell backwards and hit his head on the concrete.

After he punched Szabo, police say Jones got into an SUV and drove away leaving the man on the pavement.

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.

Detectives are continuing their investigation and could upgrade the charges in part depending on what the medical examiner finds.

In a statement, Wake Forest said the school would comment further once it gathered more information.

Wake Forest is coached by former National Basketball Association star Danny Manning.

Szabo was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his digital marketing company, What If Media Group, wrote in a Facebook post. "He was fun to be with, interesting, and always interested".

Detectives told ABC New York station WABC-TV that Szabo had just left a family wedding, possibly while intoxicated, and was walking around banging on cars until he then pounded on Jones' SUV. The Jones family sends their deepest condolences and sympathies to the Szabo family.

"His lovely spirit and his love of life will remain with us", the company said in the Facebook post.
