Michigan assistant gymnastics coach quits after charge

By  | 

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- An assistant women's gymnastics coach at Michigan has resigned, days after police said they found him engaged in sexual activity with a student in a car.

Scott Vetere is one of the most-decorated gymnasts in Michigan history.

He and the 18-year-old woman were cited for indecent conduct in public for the alleged incident on Oct. 8 in Ann Arbor.

The university says Vetere resigned a week later.

Athletic department spokesman Kurt Svoboda says employees are barred from having romantic relationships with students.

Vetere couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday.

There is no listing for a home number.

The 39-year-old was a member of Michigan's 1999 national championship team and was a 10-time NCAA All-American. In 2000, Vetere shared the U-M Male Athlete of the Year award.
