MAPLE GROVE, Minn. - The turbulence within the Maple Grove High School boys hockey program continues with news that head coach Gary Stefano has been suspended with pay while an investigation is carried out.
Osseo Area Schools spokesperson Barb Olson confirmed Friday that Stefano has been placed on administrative leave from his coaching position but said she could not provide details on the nature of the investigation.
Olson did say that the Stefano matter is not related to the incident that resulted in the suspension of 13 of his players. She says the investigation into the mid-December incident involving the players and what they did inside a private home has concluded, while the Stefano investigation is ongoing.
