FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The women's athletic director at North Dakota State has been suspended for two weeks without pay.

Athletic director Gene Taylor said in a March 26 letter of reprimand to Lynn Dorn that she was being suspended the following day due to "significant inappropriate professional behavior" during a series of incidents on Feb. 23. He did not go into detail.

Taylor said there are potential violations of NDSU policies including one that deals with harassment. His letter states that employees and a student were involved in the alleged incidents and cautions Dorn to "avoid the appearance of retaliation of any kind."

NDSU said Taylor would address the matter publicly Wednesday afternoon. Dorn did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
