The media director for Syracuse University's athletic department is no longer employed by the school and, according to a newspaper report, is being investigated by police.
Roger Springfield does not work for the university any more, Kevin Quinn, senior vice president for public affairs at the university, said Wednesday night. Quinn did not provide additional information.
The Post-Standard of Syracuse reported hours earlier that Springfield is under investigation by Syracuse police and the district attorney's office.
Attorney James McGraw has been hired to represent Springfield. He did not return a phone call from The Associated Press. McGraw told The Post-Standard he did not know what prompted the investigation.
Fitzpatrick told the paper the investigation began after university officials contacted law enforcement officials recently. He said he expected it to last another two to three weeks.
Springfield was a sportscaster for 11 years at a Syracuse television station before he was hired as director of media properties and productions at the university. His LinkedIn profile says he was employed by the university since 2003.
