University of Delaware volleyball coach Bonnie Kenny and associate head coach Cindy Gregory have been put on administrative leave by the school.

UD athletics spokesman Scott Selheimer confirmed to The News Journal of Wilmington that the coaches have been on leave since Friday.

Selheimer declined to explain the reasons for the university’s decision and would not say whether it is a disciplinary measure or if the coaches requested it.

Delaware is 6-12 overall and 0-5 in the Colonial Athletic Association this season.

Kenny is in her 15th season as Delaware coach and has won four CAA Tournament championships during that time. Gregory coached with Kenny at the University of Massachusetts from 1995-2001 and came with her to Delaware in 2002.

The newspaper was unable to reach Kenny for comment.
