Amid allegations that he paid to have O.J. Mayo join the Trojans for his one-year stint as a college player, head coach Tim Floyd has resigned from USC's men's basketball program, according to published reports.

According to the AP, in a one-paragraph letter to the school's AD, he wrote that he was quitting "because he no longer had full enthusiasm for his job."

Yah ... I wouldn't be too psyched about it either.

Back in May, Yahoo! reported that one of Mayo's former associates, Louis Johnson, told investigators that Floyd paid a man named Rodney Guillory -- one of Mayo's "handlers" -- $1,000 if Mayo picked USC as his one-and-done school of choice.

In Mayo's one season at USC, he led the Trojans to a 21-12 record and at-large berth in the NCAA tournament before leaving for the NBA, where he was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies. ESPN's Outside the Lines ran a lengthy report on Mayo's relationship with Guillory and BDA sports agency, which signed him when he turned pro.

Floyd, who was 85-50 at USC, has never addressed the allegations involving Mayo. If the NCAA can prove Floyd paid to have Mayo delivered to USC, that would be considered a major violation, according to the Associated Press.
