COLUMBIA — Missouri head men's women's swimming and diving head coach Greg Rhodenbaugh has been placed on paid administrative leave, the university announced Monday.

The university is investigating allegations related to team management, it said in a release.

"We recently were made aware of serious team management allegations by our student-athletes, and it is appropriate that coach Rhodenbaugh be placed on paid administrative leave while the University conducts a full investigation," Missouri director of athletics Jim Sterk said. "Our goal is to provide the best possible environment for all Mizzou student-athletes to achieve academic and athletic success. We expect and demand that our coaches manage their programs with the utmost integrity, and we will review any allegation thoroughly."

Rhodenbaugh is in his ninth year as head coach at Missouri.

Associate head coach Andrew Grevers will serve as the program's interim head coach until the investigation is completed.

"I am confident that Andrew will provide outstanding leadership to our coaching staff and student-athletes during this difficult time," Sterk said.

Grevers, also in his ninth year with the Tigers, has served as the program's associate head coach since the 2016-17 season. He is the program's lead sprint coach.
