NEPHI — A first-year history teacher and assistant coach of the Juab High School football team has resigned amid a criminal investigation.

The coach, who had not been arrested or charged as of Friday, was placed on administrative leave last week by the Juab School District and resigned sometime that afternoon or the next morning, according to Superintendent Rick Robins.

Robins said the teacher was accused of "allegations of misconduct involving a student." The case was turned over to the Nephi Police Department, which confirmed Friday that a criminal investigation is being conducted. Investigators, however, had no other details to release.

The allegations were brought to the attention of the school district last week.

"It's still very early in the investigation. Obviously I'm disappointed and not happy with it. But we're moving forward with the investigation," Robins said.
