Goodman told Towson athletic director Wayne Edwards on Wednesday that he would he will not play basketball for the school again as long as Hunt is head coach.
University officials said yesterday Hunt would not be fired or suspended. The first-year coach was reminded about "appropriate standards of professional conduct," according to a statement. University officials declined to comment further.
Goodman's father, Karl, said he was glad his son would finish the academic year on a scholarship.
"It's very nice of them to do that," Karl Goodman said. "The family appreciates it."
Karl Goodman said Tamir plans to transfer to another Division I school with hopes of playing basketball again.
"He's hopeful that he can turn all this around. I guess New York would be the best fit for him," the father said. "Whatever school it is, we would request a waiver of the rule that makes him sit out a year."
Both Hunt and Tamir Goodman have been told not to comment on the case.
Goodman, a sophomore, started 23 games last season for coach Mike Jaskulski, averaging 6.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists.
Jaskulski was fired after a 12-17 season, and Goodman's production diminished greatly under Hunt - he averaged less than 12 minutes and two points per game.

KEADY: Dispute over wins
Coach Gene Keady and Purdue think he's on the verge of winning his 500th game. The NCAA doesn't.
While school officials will count Keady's next victory as No. 500, the NCAA is not crediting him with 19 victories the Boilermakers forfeited because of rules violations in the 1995-96 season.
Purdue (5-3) plays Dayton tomorrow.
"It's ridiculous they don't count them," Keady said. "That was the biggest joke I've ever been involved in."
A two-year NCAA investigation into the program found that assistant coach Frank Kendrick lied to investigators and told a former player to do the same. The NCAA also ruled that Kendrick helped secure a $4,000 loan for former player Luther Clay, and that a booster helped a player's mother get housing in Indianapolis for former player Porter Roberts.
The 24 games Clay played in during the '95-'96 season were forfeited, dropping Purdue's record from 26-6 to 7-25.
Keady was not implicated.
NCAA spokesman Wally Renfro said he hoped Purdue would reconsider its position, but acknowledged the organization was powerless to force the issue.
