has banned a speed skating coach from university facilities after allegations of improper behavior.
The coach, who the university did not identify in a statement, was an independent contractor coaching members of the university's speed skating team at the Island Sports Center on Neville Island.
Several of those skaters are affiliated with the Pittsburgh Speed Skating Club, which notified the university of the allegations and contacted Pittsburgh city police.
The university did not provide details of the allegations.
The university said in a statement that it would "fully cooperate with any investigation."
The coach has been banned from the university and RMU's speed skating program has been suspended as a result of the incident.
"Although the coach is not an employee of the university, we believed the allegations against him warranted the decisive actions we have taken," said university President Gregory Dell'Omo in a statement.
