The San Antonio Spurs have hired Kelvin Sampson as an adviser according to Indianapolis TV station WTRV-6.

Sampson recently resigned as the Indiana men's basketball coach amid allegations he committed major NCAA rule violations.

Sampson was in Denver for the Spurs game against the Nuggets Friday night and was also at the Spurs' home game against Indiana on Thursday.

According to WTRV-6, Sampson is expected to advise the Spurs for at least the next few weeks.

Sampson resigned from IU on Feb. 22 and will receive a $750,000 buyout. The NCAA alleges Sampson and two assistants didn't adhere to telephone recruiting restrictions imposed when Sampson was at Oklahoma. It also accused him of providing misleading information to IU and NCAA investigators.

Sampson denies intentionally providing false or misleading information.
