Georgia Tech assistant coach Darryl LaBarrie announced on Tuesday evening that he was resigning from his position amid an NCAA investigation into potential recruiting violations.

“The NCAA review is taking longer than any of us would have hoped for,” LaBarrie said in a statement. “Therefore, as a Georgia Tech graduate who loves the school, I recently resigned my assistant-coaching position with the program to alleviate one of the many distractions that the team has had to deal with this season.”

LaBarrie has been on administrative leave since November. The investigation is in regards to what happened on the recruiting visit for a current freshman that did not end up at Georgia Tech.
