Utah Suspends Swim Coach for Alleged Involvement in Sexual Incident

March 1, 2013

The University of Utah suspended its head swimming coach Thursday after allegations surfaced that he had engaged in sexual activity with a 15-year-old member of a swim club he coached in Arizona several years ago, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. The Maricopa County (Ariz.) attorney’s office is reviewing the allegations against Greg Winslow, and no charges have been filed yet, the newspaper said. In a statement provided to the newspaper, the university's athletics director, Chris Hill, noted that the student allegedly involved in the incident had no affiliation with the university. But "I feel the allegations are serious enough to suspend [Winslow] immediately pending further investigation," Hill said.
