Former Tennessee Player/Current HS Football Coach Accused of Soliciting Teen for Sex

High School Coach Sex Scandal LogoThose darn cell phones! Always leaving an electronic trail.

Former Pigeon Forge High School assistant football coach and former Tennessee wide receiver Josh Briscoe has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of soliciting sexual exploitation of a minor and solicitation of a minor. According to court records, the charges stem from a text message Briscoe allegedly sent to a 15-year-old student in August 2009.

Briscoe’s attorney, Joe Baker, told the Knoxville News Sentinel the authorities interpreted what were innocent comments in the worst light possible. Baker did not immediately return a call from the Associated Press. Court records show the student received a text that read, “You owe me a lil action for going off like that,” and suggested a sexual favor. A police investigation did not uncover additional improper conduct.
