LeGree Resigns After DUI Charge

No second chance this time for current assistant coach and former point guard Keith LeGree.

With University of Cincinnati director of athletics Bob Goin working the last three official days on the job, University of Cincinnati officials must again work around a member of its athletics staff dealing with a DUI charge.

Men's assistant basketball coach Keith LeGree has resigned his position at the university effective immediately, came the statement from the universities sports information department today.

LeGree, a former Bearcats player and native of Statesboro, Georgia, joined the Bearcats staff in 2000. A former point guard (1994-95) for Coach Bob Huggins, LeGree also served the team as a video coordinator from 1998-1999.

In May, Director Goin instituted a zero-tolerance policy within the athletic department that carries immediate termination to any employee who engages in conduct detrimental to the athletic department or university.

LeGree was also charged back in March with driving under the influence. At the time LeGree was suspended from the program but allowed back when he was found not to be under the influence in court.

The latest charge comes from LeGree being stopped on a DUI charge on Saturday monring in Newport, Kentucky. The former point guard was arraigned on Monday morning and resigned later in the day.
