Chaminade places coach on administrative leave for racial slur

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii News Now learned that following the Chaminade men's basketball game Sunday night, assistant coach Mike Mathey sent a text message to someone who he thought was a friend. 

The text message, which contained a racial slur, was actually sent to one of the members of the team. 

The team member brought it to University officials, who took immediate steps to place Mathey on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation which is expected to be concluded by Thursday.
