TALLAHASSEE - Florida A&M University men's basketball coach Mike Gillespie Sr. was placed on paid leave Wednesday after his arrest last week on misdemeanor stalking charges.

Florida A&M Athletic Director Nelson Townsend said Gillespie would remain on leave until the charges have been resolved.

Police said they were called Friday morning by a woman, who said Gillespie stalked her at work last week.

A police report said Gillespie had been investigated several times since March 2005 on stalking complaints, but Friday was the first time he was charged.

Gillespie is free on bond, but subject to monitoring and under orders to stay away from the woman who accused him of stalking her.

Gillespie's lawyer, Tim Jansen, didn't return a call for comment Wednesday, but he said last week that the alleged stalking "didn't happen."

Gillespie, 56, has coached six seasons at Florida A&M. He is married and has two adult children, including Mike Gillespie Jr., an assistant basketball coach for his father.

Hot-Shooting Clemson Guard Yenser Transferring to Florida

GAINESVILLE - Clemson guard Susan Yenser, one of the top 3-point shooters in the Atlantic Coast Conference last season, is transferring to Florida.

Yenser spent the last two years at Clemson, averaging 5.4 points and 18 minutes a game.

She hit 35.6 percent (32-of-90) from 3-point range last season, which ranked her eighth in the ACC.

She will have to sit out the 2007-08 season, then have two years of eligibility remaining for new Gators coach Amanda Butler.

Butler was hired in April to replace Carolyn Peck, who was fired during her fifth season.
