A senior associate athletics director at the University of Minnesota, Mike Ellis, has gone on leave while outside lawyers investigate five anonymous complaints lodged against him since the resignation of athletics director Norwood Teague, the university confirmed Thursday. University spokesman Evan Lapiska said the school asked Ellis and he agreed to take voluntary time off while the complaints are investigated by the same outside lawyers who were hired to investigate the circumstances of Teague's Aug. 7 resignation, which followed allegations from two high-level administrators that Teague sexually harassed them at a senior leadership retreat in July. Lapiska said he could not disclose the nature of the five anonymous complaints against Ellis, which he said were received via the university's EthicsPoint system for reporting violations of university policies or other laws, rules and regulations.
