Matt Painter said he still is gathering information and wouldn't comment further about assistant coach Mike Jackson's status.
Painter spoke with reporters during his regularly scheduled bi-weekly teleconference on Thursday but didn't offer much more on Jackson, who was arrested last week on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated and in a reckless manner.
The athletics department suspended Jackson on Wednesday, according to a news release by assistant athletics director for communications Tom Schott.
Painter said on Thursday that he is looking into options as to whether he can add a temporary member to his staff while Jackson is out.
"We're trying to figure some things out," Painter said.
The women's team was without assistant Martin Clapp when he took a medical leave of absence last season and former player Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton joined the staff on a temporary basis.
Sharon Versyp said being without an assistant meant responsibilities for the remaining coaches "almost doubles." There's a quicker rotation on scouting reports for opponents and no one can fill the absence in recruiting of the missing coach.
