FILE - This April 19, 2011 file photo shows Miami athletic director Shawn Eichorst clapping as he speaks during a news conference in Coral Gables, Fla. A person with knowledge of the situation says that Eichorst has resigned, less than 18 months after he began leading the Hurricanes' troubled department. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012,  on condition of anonymity because the university had not publicly announced Eichorst's decision, and that university officials were deciding on how to proceed with an interim AD.
