BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Indiana University has added extra officers at school President Michael McRobbie's office, Assembly Hall and other campus locations after the resignation of former men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson.
There have been no specific threats against McRobbie or any school officials since Sampson accepted a $750,000 buyout on Friday, Indiana University police Capt. Jerry Minger said. Still, the department chose to increase security at several campus locations.
Those include Bryan Hall, where McRobbie and other administrators have offices, and Bryan House, which is the president's campus residence, although McRobbie does not live there.
Extra officers also were added at Assembly Hall and other locations that might draw crowds.
``As the attention on this kind of issue dwindles, so will our focus on those locations,'' Minger said. ``There was no overt threat to anybody or any specific location.''
After former men's basketball coach Bobby Knight was fired in September 2000, police arrested several protesters and used riot gear for crowd control when thousands of students rushed to the residence of then-President Myles Brand, setting fire to trees and burning effigies of Brand.
