Saint Augustine's head football coach placed on administrative leave without pay

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Saint Augustine's University's head football coach was placed on administrative leave without pay on Wednesday, the school said.

Athletic Director George Williams said Head Coach Michael Morand's two-week unpaid leave is effective immediately.

Williams said pending an internal investigation, further action may be taken.

St. Aug's assistant coaches Tim Chavous and Jonathan Kelly, Sr. will serve as interim head coaches for two weeks while Morand is on leave.

The university has not released details surrounding Morand's leave.

Morand has been the head coach at the university since December 2014. His biography on the university's website boasts about his accomplishments since then.

Under his leadership that year his team earned the CIAA highest team grade point average in football. Also during that time he was named CIAA Coach of the Week and USA College Football Division II National Coach of the Week.
