There has been a lot of speculation on why Arizona State running backs coach Bo Graham suddenly resigned from the program Monday, but more details are starting to emerge.

CBS Sports personality Doug Gottlieb reported Wednesday Graham's resignation is due to having a rumored relationship with a student-athlete that no longer is competing at the time.

Rumors started to swirl Monday when former ASU quarterback Rudy Carpenter sent this tweet shortly after news of Graham's resignation broke:

ASU coach Todd Graham was asked about Bo's departure and Carpenter's tweet following Tuesday's practice, but he quickly dismissed it by saying Bo had accepted a job elsewhere and called it a "personal matter."

ASU graduate assistant Josh Martin has assumed Bo's position as running backs coach.
