Wis. athletic director quits amid allegation


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Madison says senior associate athletic director John Chadima has resigned.

   University spokesman Vince Sweeney says the school learned of an allegation of misconduct against Chadima and placed him on administrative leave Friday. Sweeney says Chadima resigned later that day.

   Sweeney wouldn't comment on the nature of the allegation, nor say whether there was more than one allegation.

   A message left at Chadima's home Saturday wasn't immediately returned.

   Sweeney says Chadima's position within the UW Department of Athletics was administrative and not directly involved with any team. He says the job involves overseeing facilities and building projects.

   The university's website says Chadima was an associate athletic director there since 2003. Prior to that he was a director of the school's football operations and director of facilities and events.
