A director of basketball operations at the University of New Hampshire has been relieved of his duties following claims that he filmed the men's basketball team in the locker room, according to reports.

NBC Sports report that Scott Weitzell, director at the east coast university filmed the players during a road game in Vermont in January.

According to the report, the 50 year old executive used a cell phone hidden inside a locker to secretly film the players.

The student-athletes became aware of the existence of the phone around a month later and reported it to campus officials.

The university have now removed information on Weitzell's profile page at

When the police obtained a search warrant for the phone, Weitzell attempted to destroy the phone.

Weitzell was charged with attempting to falsify evidence and resisting arrest. Other charges, police said are likely to be forthcoming.

The Wildcats have a 6-23 record and have currently lost their last six games.
