TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa athletic director Ross Parmley has been placed on leave as the school investigates gambling allegations.

University President Steadman Upham issued a brief statement Tuesday saying Parmley will be on paid administrative leave during the investigation. Upham didn't offer details about whether the allegations involved sports betting or other forms of gambling.

Upham says the university's executive vice president, Kevan Buck, will be the acting athletic director while Parmley is on leave.

The 39-year-old Parmley was hired at Tulsa in January after serving three months as interim AD. He previously served as Tulsa's director of football operations and assistant athletic director for football, according to the school's athletic department website.

His attorney says Parmley is cooperating with investigators.
