SHARON, Pa. - The man accused of attacking Sharon Football Coach Jim Wildman in his home remains jailed following a Friday court appearance.

38-year-old Joseph Koscinski waived his preliminary hearing before a district magistrate.

Koscinski faces charges that include aggravated assault, burglary, making terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person.

Police have confirmed that Koscinski played in high school under Coach Wildman 20 years ago.

Wildman suffered serious injuries to his face, neck and ear.

The attack was stopped by neighbors and an off-duty Sharon Police Officer.
