Southern California men's basketball coach Tim Floyd reportedly has resigned, one month after being accused of paying someone to help steer former star O.J. Mayo to the school.
The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson, Miss., reported Tuesday that Floyd submitted a one-paragraph letter of resignation to athletic director Mike Garrett.
Floyd, who turned around the Trojans program in his four seasons there, led the team to the NCAA tournament the last three seasons, a first in school history.
In May, Yahoosports.com reported that one-time Mayo confidant Louis Johnson said Floyd made a payment of $1,000 to Rodney Guillory, a ``runner'' for sports agent Bill Duffy.
Such a payment would be a major violation of NCAA rules.
