GEORGIA – A popular high school football coach is fighting to save his career and reputation amid allegations he sent nude photographs of himself to the mother of two of his players.
Martin Luther King Jr. High School’s head coach, Michael Carson, has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. The 51-year-old is accused of sexting a single mom of two boys, who claims she spurned his advances.
“There were some nude photos involved of the coach,” said DeKalb County Schools Spokesman, Jeff Dickerson, in an interview with Atlanta’s Fox 5 News. “My understanding is that they were shown to people who were around at the time, and many of them may include students.”
Parent, Davida Bishop, showed the unwanted sex-text to Carson’s wife, staff, and others during a football match at Panthersville Stadium in Georgia on Saturday night.
Carson is on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation. He cannot have any contact with students.
