UPDATE 1/24/17 @ 2:20 p.m.
HUNTINGTON, W. Va. (WSAZ) -- Marshall University has announced Chris Duhon has resigned as assistant men's basketball coach.

The announcement comes four days after Duhon was suspended for driving with a revoked license.

Duhon was arrested in the early morning hours of January 21 by Hurricane Police.

He was suspended later that day and missed Marshall's game against Western Kentucky.

A statement from Marshall Athletics says:

"Assistant men's basketball coach Chris Duhon has resigned his position, effective immediately. As this is a personnel matter, the department will have no further comment."

Duhon joined the coaching staff in 2014.

HUNTINGTON, W. Va. (WSAZ) -- Chris Duhon has been suspended as Marshall's Assistant Men's Basketball Coach after he was arrested for a second time early Saturday morning.

Duhon was arrested for the second time in just over a year by Hurricane Police, this time for driving with a revoked license. This stems from the former NBA star's DUI arrest back in November of 2015.

Marshall Athletics released a statement saying:

"We are aware of the situation involving assistant coach Chris Duhon. He has been suspended for this evening's game versus Western Kentucky while the department gathers further information. There will be no further comment."

According to a criminal complaint in 2015, Duhon was found by deputies asleep in a running car on Limestone Drive in Eleanor. Deputies say they smelled alcohol on his breath, administered three sobriety tests which he failed, and Duhon had a blood alcohol level of .202 when given a breathalyzer test.

Duhon was also suspended by Marshall for two months following that arrest, for what they called "a violation of department rules and polices".

Hurricane's Police Chief says Duhon was not intoxicated at the time of his arrest Saturday morning and he is only charged with driving with a revoked operator's license.

He was taken to Western Regional Jail, but has since bonded out.
