Aubrey Lloyd, athletic director for the Buffalo Public Schools, has been placed on administrative leave, spokesperson Elena Cala confirmed on Tuesday.
The reason was not disclosed. No further comments were issued by the district.
Cala said Lloyd's supervisor, Anibal Soler, is handling Lloyd's duties on an interim basis. Lloyd did not return a voicemail made by The Buffalo News.
Lloyd oversees one of the largest school districts in the state. He supervises 201 coaches and 120 physical education teachers and manages an athletics budget of $3.2 million. He has been on the job since March 2010, when he took over for the retired Dave Thomas on an interim basis.
Lloyd was named to the post permanently in September 2010.
