After a plethora of welcome recruiting rule changes this past week, the NCAA Director of Enforcement, Bill Benjamin, has turned in his resignation letter.
An NCAA spokeswoman informed The Associated Press Wednesday in an email to the publisher that Benjamin has resigned from his position.
Benjamin’s job as the Director of Enforcement was to lead a team of investigators in whatever private investigations the NCAA decided to declare on any players, agents or coaches in suspect. Benjamin’s main focus was on football, but his team did work with all major sports, including college basketball.
Stacey Osburn, the NCAA spokeswoman, said of the issue that Bejamin stepped down to “pursue other opportunities.”
His last day with the NCAA will be on June 11.
