UNIVERSITY PARK - Penn State head football athletic trainer and former live-in Beta Theta Pi advisor Tim Bream has resigned.

According to a spokesman with the university's athletics department, Bream informed university officials that he plans to resign from his position at the end of the month.

"We appreciate Tim's contributions to Penn State Athletics and his commitment to the care of our student-athletes and their success. We wish Tim success in his future endeavors," Jeff Nelson, Penn State associate athletic director for communications, said Friday in an email.

Bream, 57, has been with the university since 2012 and came under fire after it came to light that he was living in the Beta Theta Pi House as their advisor during the death of pledge Timothy Piazza.

Bream has not been charged in the case, but has testified in court and has been criticized for not knowing more about the events that led to Piazza's death.

The Piazza family previously called for Bream to be fired by the university.
