Georgia Tech's LaBarrie resigns as NCAA review continues

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA — Georgia Tech assistant men's basketball coach Darryl LaBarrie has resigned during an ongoing NCAA investigation of an alleged rules violation, the school has confirmed.

LaBarrie was placed on paid administrative leave on Nov. 22 while Georgia Tech and the NCAA investigated the alleged violation during a recruiting visit. Julian Swartz, the team's director of recruiting and compliance, replaced LaBarrie on an interim basis.

In a statement provided to The Associated Press on Wednesday, Georgia Tech said the NCAA's review "remains ongoing" and the school would have no further comment on LaBarrie's resignation "at this time."

Two Georgia Tech players, Josh Okogie and Tadric Jackson, were suspended for six and three games, respectively, early in the season for accepting benefits. Georgia Tech determined the players received apparel, meals and transportation.
