MONTGOMERY, Ala. ― The chairman of the board of trustees at Alabama State University, Elton Dean, says he’s resigning.

Dean announced his decision on the campus radio station, WVAS, Thursday afternoon.

Gov. Robert Bentley, who is president of the ASU board, had called for Dean and vice chairman Marvin Wiggins to resign after an accrediting agency gave the university a warning and cited conflicts of interest by Dean and Wiggins.

Wiggins said he’s not resigning because he’s done nothing wrong.

The president of the Student Government Association and an alumni leader had also called for their resignations.
