FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota State University athletics director Bob Entzion resigned Friday, two weeks after being arrested on a lewd conduct charge stemming from an incident in an Omaha, Neb., park.
"He felt it was best for him," NDSU President Joseph Chapman said Friday. "I concur it's best for NDSU."
Entzion had been on paid administrative leave since Nov. 29, the day the university learned of his arrest from an Omaha newspaper reporter. Entzion submitted a three-sentence letter of resignation to Chapman during a brief meeting Friday morning.
Entzion said he would not comment on his resignation or the pending charges in Omaha on the advice of his attorney.
"I have enjoyed being a part of the success of Bison athletics and North Dakota State University for the last 12 years," Entzion wrote to Chapman. "I would like to wish North Dakota State University the very best."
Entzion was arrested in an Omaha park Nov. 24 after police say he approached a male undercover officer.
