Our tipster things that both of these coaches were involved with the same girl, but according to newspaper reports, the young women involved were 16 and 17, so unless she gave the cops different ages, we think this is two different underage girls. Still, to let your head boys basketball coach go, but almost as soon as you name his assistant to take his place, THAT coach gets busted as well? It could only happen at a Model High School. Here’s more from the Rome News:
Two former Model High School coaches arrested Thursday on sexual assault charges were released from the Floyd County Jail on Friday afternoon. Daniel Brown, 30, and Matthew Blanton, 28, were released after both posted $7,350 bail. They are accused of being involved in inappropriate teacher-student relationships.
Brown and Blanton were both arrested on felony sexual assault charges, said Floyd County Police Sgt. Teri Davis. Police investigating Blanton and Brown’s cases reported that the unidentified female students involved are ages 16 and 17.
According to documents at the Floyd County Jail, Blanton is accused of kissing and fondling a student on school property, while Brown is accused of having a sexual relationship with a Model student. The offense locations were listed as the school and his home on Robin Hood Road.
