Jamill Jones, 35, was arraigned in NY on third-degree assault charges, court records show.
Jones is accused of punching 35-year-old, Sandor Szabo, who is from Florida, and was in NY for a wedding in Long Island.
Szabo, who was left unconscious after the altercation, died on Tuesday. Jones then got out and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene.
"We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information", Wake Forest said in a statement released Thursday evening.
Jones was released on his own recognizance and ordered to return to court October 2. The coach's next court appearance is scheduled for October 2, the Queens District Attorney's office said.
