PHILADELPHIA (AP) - La Salle men's basketball coach Billy Hahn and women's coach John Miller were put on administrative leave with pay while police investigate rape accusations against players.

The coaches were placed on leave Tuesday and there is no timetable for their return, university spokesman Joe Donovan said Thursday.

"It's linked to what we're trying to find out," he said.

Police have been investigating a recent rape accusation against two members of the La Salle men's basketball team and an accusation of an attack more than a year ago.

A 19-year-old woman told police she was assaulted by two men's team players in a La Salle dormitory in June. Detectives later learned a player on the La Salle women's basketball team said she was raped by a player on the men's team in April 2003 but never reported it to police.

No charges have been filed in either case.

Hahn is 37-53 in three seasons at La Salle. The men's team made five trips to the NCAA tournament in the 1980s but has not been to the tournament since 1992. The 2004 season was the 50th anniversary of La Salle's only NCAA championship.

Miller has coached the Explorers for 18 seasons, going 317-203 with two NCAA tournament appearances.

I don't understand, why put the coaches on admin leave? These two haven't done anything, weren't there, and probably had no knowledge of it. Gary Barnett, he ran his mouth off, making stupid comments about the accusations made of his players, he deserves the boot. It appears these 2 did absolutely nothing.
