University of Utah head swim coach Greg Winslow  has been suspended indefinitely following allegations of sexual abuse of a 15-year-old girl while he was a coach of an Arizona State club program.

Utah director of athletics Chris Hill released a statement Thursday morning.

“The Athletics Department first learned of the allegations against our swim coach Greg Winslow last night,” Hill said in the statement. “While it is my understanding from an article published this morning that charges have not been filed against Coach Winslow, I feel the allegations are serious enough to suspend him immediately pending further investigation.”

The Utes are competing this week in the Pac-12 Women’s Swimming Championships in Federal Way, Wash. Winslow, in his sixth season as Utah coach, previously was head coach of the Sun Devil Aquatics beginning in 2005.

Concussion Inc., a swimming blog written by Tim Joyce and Irvin Muchnick, first wrote of the allegations. Their blog coach alleges the abuse happened in a locked coach’s office on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz., over a period of at least two years.

Diving coach Richard Marschner, in his third year at Utah, is now the interim swimming and diving coach.

Monday, the ASU campus police filed an 80-plus-page report in Mesa, Ariz., with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.

In a statement to Swimmingworldmagazine.com, Winslow said: “These are extremely serious allegations, and if I am accused, I will certainly respond.”
