Indianaís Greenspan will resign

Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS ó Indiana athletic director Rick Greenspan will resign at the end of December amid new NCAA allegations that the school failed to monitor the menís basketball team.
The NCAA initially alleged former basketball coach Kelvin Sampson committed five major recruiting violations during his 1 1/2 years at the school but dropped one of the charges before school officials testified in front of the NCAA infractions committee.
Indiana is awaiting a decision on penalties from the NCAA. The infractions committee listened to the universityís defense on June 13-14.
But just as the school was announcing Greenspanís decision, after months of criticism for his role in hiring Sampson, the school was charged with another major allegation, which caught president Michael McRobbie and Greenspan off-guard.
iThis is an allegation toward the athletic department as to who is culpable,î Greenspan said. iI say, as I always have, I take responsibility for what happens in the athletic department. I strongly disagree with the allegation and the vagueness of the term ëbusiness practices.í î
