M University men's basketball coach Mike Gillespie Sr. was placed on paid leave Wednesday after his arrest last week on misdemeanor stalking charges.
M Athletic Director Nelson Townsend said Gillespie would remain on leave until the charges have been resolved.
Police said they were called Friday morning by a woman, who said Gillespie stalked her at work last week. A police report said Gillespie had been investigated several times since March 2005 on stalking complaints, but Friday was the first time he was charged.
Gillespie is free on bond, but subject to monitoring and under orders to stay away from the woman who accused him of stalking her.
Gillespie's attorney, Tim Jansen, didn't return a call for comment Wednesday, but he said last week that the alleged stalking ``didn't happen.''
M. He is married and has two adult children, including Mike Gillespie Jr., an assistant basketball coach for his father.
