Binghamton coach on leave for recruiting violation

BY foxsports • October 14, 2009

Binghamton basketball coach Kevin Broadus has been placed on an indefinite paid leave of absence.

Interim athletic director James Norris said the decision was reached after discussions with university president Lois DeFleur and vice president James Van Voorst. Assistant coach Mark Macon will take over in the interim.

The move comes after Friday's announcement that Broadus admitted having contact with prospective recruits that violated NCAA regulations.

DeFleur called for an audit of the entire athletic program after the releases last month of star basketball player Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben, who's facing drug charges, and five of his teammates.
