A college basketball coach who police say threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist has pleaded not guilty to an assault charge.

Police arrested a college basketball coach Thursday after a Florida tourist, in Queens for his stepsister's wedding, died after a punch to the face.

Jamill Jones was charged with misdemeanor assault Thursday in connection with the death of Sabor Szabo over the weekend.

Szabo apparently mistook the vehicle for an Uber that he had called.

Wake Forest basketball assistant coach Jamil Jones.

Wake Forest said in a statement that it would comment further once it gathered more information. Szabo was taken to the hospital in critical condition before passing away.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday. The assistant coach's next court appearance is scheduled for October 2, according to the Post.

Jones' lawyer also said they send their "deepest condolences and sympathies" to the Szabo family.

Jones is set to begin his second season on Danny Manning's Wake Forest staff after joining in the spring of 2017.

"Sandor was a super outgoing, friendly, and incredibly smart businessman", his employer said.

"The court made the proper ruling with the charges, and the District Attorney's office made the proper ruling with the charges", the statement read, per the Post.

Jones' attorney, Alain Massena, told CNN on Thursday night that Jones learned through social media on Tuesday that Szabo had been injured and police were seeking a suspect. "He was a really good person". We're going to say one thing and that's all.

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