Joe Tumpkin, CU Buffs assistant coach, resigns ahead of expected criminal charges

Colorado S coach Joe Tumpkin has resigned.

"Furthermore, we need to move forward to ensure we do not have gaps in our coaching staff as we build the team and sign new recruits", George said.

In December, an ex-girlfriend of Tumpkin filed a complaint against him, alleging that he physically assaulted her on multiple occasions. Tumpkin's resignation is effective Tuesday. Tumpkin had been suspended and placed on administrative leave since January 6.

Tumpkin was placed on administrative leave earlier this month when football coach Mike MacIntyre and athletic director Rick George learned that the woman obtained a restraining order against Tumpkin on December 20.

Tumpkin waived the right to a hearing regarding a permanent restraining order the woman sought. The woman lives in MI and said she regularly visited Tumpkin in Colorado during the three years that they dated, according to the court records. He assumed defensive play-calling duties for former defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt during the Buffs' 38-8 loss to Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl on December 29.

The woman said the first attack occurred February 27, 2015, and the most recent took place November 18 when Tumpkin is alleged to have "arrived intoxicated to a house in Broomfield and jabbed his finger in her face and then pinned her against a wall and choked her, according to the complaint". That was a month before she asked for a restraining order.

Tumpkin will receive two months of severance pay ($34,000), a payout for unused vacation time ($29,607) and a one-time payment of $15,692 in his final paycheck under the campus' postseason compensation policy.

Tumpkin, 45, had been with the team since early 2015 as the safeties coach.
