BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Western Kentucky has announced that former Hilltoppers assistant Jake Morton has resigned as director of basketball operations.
The NCAA in February accused Morton of three recruiting violations allegedly committed as a University of Miami assistant between October 2008 and April 2009. The sports' governing body also says he accepted at least $6,000 in supplemental income from convicted felon and Miami booster Nevin Shapiro between October 2007 and October 2008.
Western Kentucky hired Morton as a Hilltoppers assistant in June 2011. He was re-assigned to director of basketball operations following the 2011-12 season.
A school spokesman said Thursday that Morton resigned ``to pursue coaching opportunities.''
