HONOLULU - The Head Men's Volleyball Coach at the University of Hawaii at Manoa is under investigation regarding an allegation of possible misconduct with a female athlete. 

Charlie Wade is being investigated for an incident that happened approximately 30 years ago in California when he was coaching a club volleyball team.

"Wade strongly denies that any type of misconduct took place. In his years at UH, as the women’s volleyball assistant coach and as the men’s coach, he has never been accused of this type of misconduct and has always handled himself with the highest level of professionalism," the University said in a statement.

Wade reportedly cooperated with the SafeSport investigation as soon as he was notified in September of last year -- though he has not been interviewed or heard back from SafeSport since.
