BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Police in northern Ohio say they are investigating racist graffiti scrawled in chalk in front of a college basketball coach's house.

Police say vandals wrote "white power" along with a swastika on the sidewalk in front of Bowling Green State University basketball coach Louis Orr's home over the weekend. Orr is black.

Orr, the team's coach since 2007, declined to comment through a university spokesman who said this is the first time anything like this has happened to the coach since he's been at Bowling Green.

A police spokesman said he hopes someone in the community will come forward with information about who did it.
