Missouri cross country coach Joe Lynn has been suspended for a “personnel matter,” a spokesman for the athletic department confirmed Thursday.

Lynn, who also serves as an assistant track and field coach for middle distance and distance runners, is in his third season at Missouri.

According to a text from MU’s spokesman received by The Star, “it has nothing to do with a legal situation but that’s all we can discuss.”

Lynn, who was hired as the men’s cross country coach and took over the women’s program in 2012, coached at NCAA Division II power Grand Valley State University for five seasons before joining the Tigers.
