Associate AD refused breath test

CINCINNATI -- An associate athletic director at Cincinnati resigned Friday, the third official in the university's athletic department to be accused of drunken driving in the past year.

Bruce Ivory quit after his arrest in suburban Greenhills, school spokesman Tom Hathaway said.

Ivory was stopped Friday when officers saw his car weaving,
Greenhills police Chief Thomas Doyle said. Ivory did poorly on a
field sobriety test and refused a breath test. He was charged with
drunken driving and is to appear in court May 24, Doyle said.

Ivory could not be reached for comment Friday. His home
telephone number is not published.

In March, assistant basketball coach Keith LeGree was arrested
and is suspended while the university investigates, Hathaway said.
LeGree was arrested less than a year after basketball coach Bob
Huggins was suspended for nearly three months after being convicted
of drunken driving.

Ivory joined the athletic department in 1984 as assistant
football coach and became assistant athletic director for academic
services in 1995 after serving as interim director for a year. He
was promoted to associate athletic director in 2002.
