Two coaches of a girls’ high school basketball team in northwestern Minnesota have resigned their athletic and teaching positions as St. Cloud police investigate two players’ serious allegations that are tied to a hotel stay during an overnight trip the team took late last year.
Andrew P. Schwan, head coach at Lake Park-Audubon, and assistant Darrin Myhre, were placed on administrative leave Friday, as soon as the complaints were made, District Superintendent Dale Hogie said Thursday. Early this week, the two “resigned their employment with the district,” Hogie said. Those resignations include their duties as teachers. Schwan, 32, taught social studies, and Myhre, 28, taught business.
“It was statements of two players provided to me on Friday” that led to Schwan and Myhre being placed on leave, Hogie said. “We take allegations seriously. The employees were placed on paid administrative leave the same day pending an investigation into the matter.”
While Hogie said privacy concerns limit what he can reveal, the superintendent did say the allegations have to do with the team’s overnight stay at a hotel while it was in Upsala on Dec. 28-29, about 35 miles northwest of St. Cloud.
