BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) -Binghamton's athletic director is resigning following the dismissal of six basketball players last week.
Joel Thirer's announcement came Wednesday, less than a week after star player Emanuel ``Tiki'' Mayben was arraigned on cocaine distribution charges and kicked off the team.
Players D.J. Rivera, Malik Alvin, Corey Chandler, Paul Crosby and David Fine also were released last week.
Binghamton president Lois DeFleur said she had stressed to Thirer that misconduct would not be tolerated among student athletes.
Thirer will remain a tenured professor, but Jim Norris will take over as interim athletic director.
Binghamton is part of the State University of New York system. Its chancellor, Nancy Zimpher, is known to take a hard line on problems in athletic programs.
