Binghamton's Coach on Leave of Absence

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - Binghamton basketball coach Kevin Broadus has been placed on an indefinite paid leave of absence.

Interim athletic director James Norris said the decision was reached after discussions with university president Lois DeFleur and vice president James Van Voorst. Assistant coach Mark Macon will take over in the interim.

The move comes after Friday's announcement that Broadus admitted
having contact with prospective recruits that violated NCAA regulations.

DeFleur called for an audit of the entire athletic program after the releases last month of star basketball player Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben, who's facing drug charges, and five of his teammates.
