A college track coach was sentenced to five years behind bars on Monday for assaulting a student – reportedly his discus-throwing sex partner – with a box-cutter and threatening to cut her face so that no man would ever find her attractive.

50-year-old former University of Arizona assistant track and field coach Craig Carter was convicted in March for aggravated assault and assault with a dangerous weapon for an Aptil 2015 attack on former athlete Baillie Gibson, Sports Illustrated reported.

The two reportedly had been engaging in an ongoing sexual relationship but Gibson told ESPN that when she tried to end it with Carter, he pushed her onto a couch and choked her with one hand while holding a box cutter to her face with the other.

He reportedly said he would cut her face so that no man would ever find her attractive.

On Monday, Carter told Pima County Superior Court Judge Teresa Godoy he was "truly sorry," per Sports Illustrated.

Gibson said her life had been "shattered because of the trust I put into Craig and the university," adding "I wish I didn't have to think about any of this because it hurts so much. No matter how hard I try I can't escape it."

Carter was arrested in May 2015 and resigned from his position at the University of Arizona, where he had worked since 2007, Tucson News Now reported.

In November that year, the former coach was ordered to stay away from the school's track and field after other coaches reported seeing him driving by and yelling at athletes.
