Maine women’s coach Lewis placed on paid leave as school investigates possible violations

Maine women’s head coach Maria Lewis has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation of “potential personnel and NCAA compliance issues,” the school announced Tuesday.

Lewis’ leave began on Sept. 16.

The school is looking at whether Maine violated NCAA bylaws restricting the number of hours Maine players spent in activities directed or supervised by the coaching staff.

Maine has not announced if an interim coach will be in place when the Black Bears open the season at Boston College on Oct. 6.
