Steve Garvey resigned as a University of San Diego trustee after disclosures that he may have fathered illegitimate children with two former lovers.
Officials at the private Roman Catholic university released a short statement, confirming Garvey’s resignation from the board of trustees.
Dan Petrie, a spokesman for Bishop Leo Maher, chairman of the university’s board of trustees, said Garvey, 40, attended the board’s annual retreat at La Quinta last weekend and turned in his resignation after a talk with the bishop.
One baby was born in San Diego to an unidentified woman on Feb. 15. Also claiming a pregnancy by Garvey is Rebecka Mendenhall of Atlanta. Garvey recently broke his engagement to Mendenhall and married Candace Thomas, 30, during the weekend of Feb. 18-19.
