Report: Philly Daily News sports columnist quits as abuse allegations surface

Bill Conlin

Deadspin is reporting that longtime Philadelphia Daily News sports columnist Bill Conlin has resigned and that Philadelphia Inquirer investigative reporter Nancy Phillips is about to come out with a story containing child molestation allegations against him. I’ve put in calls to Phillips and editors at both papers. Deadspin says Conlin has hired a lawyer and is at his condo in Largo, Fla. || UPDATE: KYW 1060 in Philadelphia reports the Inquirer story about the Conlin allegations involve molestation of girls 40 years ago, according to this tweet.
