Jamill Jones, 35, of Kernerville, North Carolina, was arrested Thursday and charged with third-degree assault.

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.

"The Jones family sends their deepest condolences and sympathies to the Szabo family".

Wake Forest has not responded to the Daily News' request for comment. The incident came after Szabo punched a resident who came outside amid the ruckus, according to The Post, which led Jones to act.

Police say a college basketball coach threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his vehicle window thinking it was his Uber ride. His family has said he was looking for his ride.

Szabo lost consciousness when his head hit the pavement, and he was brought to an area hospital in critical condition.

The family said Szabo was waiting on a ride to take him to the hotel and was knocking on auto windows. He was placed on life support and later died. He will be missed but there is comfort knowing he will live on in the many lives he will save through organ donation with "Live On NY".

Wake Forest University said Thursday night that they had just learned of Jones' arrest and would release a statement at a later time.

Jones, an assistant basketball coach at Wake Forest University, punched Szabo in the face, police said.

Jones spent one season with the Knights and now is an assistant coach at Wake Forest.

It's unclear why Jones was in New York City over the weekend.

Jamill Jones, 35, was arraigned in NY on third-degree assault charges, court records show.
