Men's hockey team suspended at University of Ottawa

The University of Ottawa has relieved the head coach of its men's varsity hockey team after an internal investigation of allegations of misconduct by some players during a trip to Thunder Bay in February.

The university will also maintain the suspension of the men's hockey program through the 2014-15 season.

University president Allan Rock says the coach was not involved in the misconduct, but should have notified authorities about the allegations.

Rock says the university will also put in place new policies and behaviour guidelines for athletes.

The university commissioned its own one-man inquiry into the incidents, but will not release the findings of that probe because police are conducting their own investigation.

The University of Ottawa website says Real Paiement has been coach of the men's team since 2011.
