UCF AD resigns amid recruiting allegations
UCF athletic director Tribble resigns amid allegations of NCAA recruiting violations
By The Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) ' Central Florida president John Hitt says that Keith Tribble is resigning as athletic director amid allegations of recruiting violations in the school's football and basketball programs.

Hitt announced the move Wednesday at a news conference to discuss a notice of allegations the school received this week from the NCAA. The notice details the infractions the NCAA says Tribble and other athletic department employees participated in between March 2009 and July 2011 that involved reputed agent runners and several players.

Tribble took over as UCF AD in 2006.

David Kelly, the football program's top recruiter, also has resigned. The school has suspended basketball coach Donnie Jones for three games.

UCF received an inquiry letter in August for violations that occurred in its football program between 2007 and 2009.
