TCU swimming and diving coach Sam Busch has resigned after less than six months on the job. Busch was placed on paid administrative leave several weeks ago while the TCU athletic department "conducted an internal inquiry into program rules, policy and procedure violations," according to a press release from the school.
The exact program rules and policy violations TCU was investigating have not been released. TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati declined to comment, but he offered a statement in the school's Friday night release.
"Coach Busch cooperated with our internal inquiry,” Donati said in the release. “After reviewing the facts with us, he decided to resign. I have accepted his resignation, and we wish him the best in his future coaching endeavors."
Busch was named the coach on Aug. 4 when Richard Sybesma retired after 38 years at TCU. Busch was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Virginia the previous four years.
Assistant coach Keith Dawley will coach TCU at the Big 12 Championships, which begin Wednesday at the University of Texas in Austin.
