UWM athletic director placed on leave

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has placed athletic director George Koonce on administrative leave.

The university will only say his leave is related to a confidential personnel matter. Koonce is a former Green Bay Packer who was hired as athletic director a year ago.

A senior assistant to the chancellor, Dave Gilbert, will serve as acting athletic director during Koonce's absence.
