TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State assistant athletic director Sherman Morris has resigned, several weeks after being arrested in an alleged domestic-violence incident.
University officials announced Tuesday that Morris resigned Friday. The assistant AD for football recruiting had been on administrative leave since early September.
Morris was arrested by police in suburban Chandler on one count of aggravated assault-serious physical injury and one count of aggravated assault-strangulation on Aug. 29.
Court documents say Morris allegedly grabbed his wife from behind and lifted her off the ground while choking her at their Chandler home. Police say Morris' wife had bruises on her arm, broken teeth and a laceration that was still bleeding when officers arrived.
Morris was hired by ASU in March after six seasons at Louisiana State, where he was director of player personnel.
