PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) Washington State University employee and former quarterback Jason Gesser resigned Tuesday, a day after he was accused of sexual misconduct.
Gesser, 39, sent a letter to the university resigning his post as assistant athletic director effective immediately.
"I am deeply saddened that recent circumstances in my private life have created a distraction for the department and university," Gesser wrote. "While I certainly never intended to hurt anyone, I believe it is best for all involved for me to move on."

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Within minutes after TCU's loss to Ohio State, coach Gary Patterson was asked what he would want people to say about that game should the 17th-ranked Horned Frogs go on to win the Big 12 title and be in consideration for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
"They said that they shouldn't hold it against Washington because they played a really good football team," Patterson said, referring to the No. 10 Huskies' season-opening loss to Auburn in another off-campus game and adding that TCU should get similar credit.
