ORONO, Maine (AP) -The associate men's basketball coach at the University of Maine has resigned after being charged with making sexual advances on a student athlete.
Mike Burden resigned Monday after being placed on paid administrative leave a day earlier by Athletic Director Blake James.
University spokesman Joe Carr says James had no further comment because of personnel and legal issues.
Orono (OR'-uh-noh) police say the 36-year-old Burden was charged with unlawful sexual contact against a 21-year-old woman and assault against a second woman who stopped to help her early Sunday.
The victim, who's on the soccer team, says she was looking for a lost cell phone when Burden approached her.
A home phone number for Burden couldn't be found.
