Dundee United have suspended Stevie Campbell, the club's head of youth recruitment and development, pending an investigation.
The 47-year-old signed a new three-year deal with United in May.
Campbell's role was to introduce young players into the Tannadice set-up to develop them into the first-team squad.
In a short statement, the club says: "Dundee United can confirm an employee has been suspended pending an internal investigation."
No detail was given about the reasons for the investigation.
Campbell has been at Tannadice since 2006, when he became part of the backroom team under the manager at the time, Craig Brewster.
