TALLAHASSEE — Florida A&M University basketball coach Mike Gillespie Sr. was jailed Friday on a misdemeanor stalking charge, police said.
Police said they were called Friday morning by a woman, who said she was stalked at work Thursday evening and again on Friday morning.
She had told authorities on May 15 of Gillespie’s advances, but didn’t want to file charges, hoping he’d stop contacting her, a police report said.
The report said police had investigated Gillespie several times since March 2005 on stalking complaints and warned him to stop his behavior. It was not immediately clear who made the complaints.
Gillespie’s attorney, Tim Jansen, said he hoped to have the coach released sometime late Friday on $1,000 bond.
Gillespie, 56, just completed his sixth season at Florida A&M by taking the team to its first 20-win season since 1988-89 and its second NCAA tournament appearance under his tutelage. He is married and has two adult children. His son, Mike Gillespie Jr., serves as his top assistant.
The school, which is already struggling with financial issues, released a statement saying it was reviewing the charges against Gillespie.
