ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan director of football operations Brad Labadie has resigned.
Athletic director Dave Brandon confirmed the move Wednesday, insisting it was made for family reasons and was unrelated to an ongoing NCAA probe.
Labadie and coach Rich Rodriguez were among the several people who received a letter of reprimand from the school for playing a role in what the NCAA said were major rule violations. Labadie was blamed for failing to correctly and promptly file forms tracking hours players spent with the team.
An NCAA hearing on the case is planned for Aug. 13-14 in Seattle.
Labadie has accepted a job as an account representative for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
