OLEAN, N.Y. -- Former NBA star Michael Adams has resigned six weeks after being hired as an assistant men's basketball coach at St. Bonaventure.

Adams said Monday he wanted to focus on supporting his son through senior year in high school.

Adams spent this past season as head coach of Archbishop Carroll high school in Washington, D.C., after two seasons under Gary Williams at Maryland.

The native of Hartford was one of the most prolific 3-point shooters in NBA history during an 11-year career that included stints in Sacramento, Washington, Denver and Charlotte.

St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt, who was a teammate of Adams at Boston College, said he was disappointed but supported his friend's decision.
