Bryan Colangelo has resigned from his role as president and general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers in the wake of reports connecting him to Twitter accounts that were used to bash current and former members of the organization, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

A statement from 76ers managing partner Josh Harris confirmed that the resignation was directly related to the alleged burner accounts.

Colangelo’s wife, Barbara Bottini, admitted that she was the Twitter fingers behind each of the secret accounts.

Coach Brett Brown will take over basketball operations while the Sixers find their next general manager. Jerry Colangelo, Bryan’s father, will stay on as a senior advisor through the end of the year.
