Indiana University has boosted security for school President Michael McRobbie following the resignation of former men's basketball coach Kelvin Sampson.

IU police Captain Jerry Minger says although there haven't been any specific threats against McRobbie, officers have stepped up their protection at McRobbie's Bloomington residence and his offices in Bloomington and Indianapolis.

Minger says police are just being cautious in light of the trouble that followed Bobby Knight's September 2000 firing, when thousands of students rushed to the residence of then-President Myles Brand, setting fire to trees.

Sampson resigned Friday after accepting a $750,000 buyout amid accusations he committed five major NCAA allegations.
