Former Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson has resigned from his position as director on the F5 Networks board.

The company, which provides application delivery networking solutions, announced the resignation in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing today, saying that it would take effect immediately.

Thompson left Yahoo last week after it was revealed that his resume included mention of him earning both a computer science degree and accounting degree from Stonehill College. Thompson only received an accounting degree from the college.

F5 Networks' Web site still lists Thompson as one of its directors. The company writes in his biography that he holds a "B.S. in accounting from Stonehill College."
