A former Klein Independent School district employee is no longer with the district after he was accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

The district said an investigation was launched when it became aware that the employee, who was a wrestling coach at Klein Oak High School, had an inappropriate relationship with a female student.

Klein ISD released the following statement:

“(He) is no longer a Klein ISD employee. When Klein ISD became aware of allegations that a Klein Oak High School employee had engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a female student, Klein ISD immediately began investigating and involved the Klein ISD Police Department. Klein ISD will continue cooperating with law enforcement authorities. The safety and security of our students is always our top priority in Klein ISD.”

The incident remains under investigation.

Channel 2 has opted not to identify the coach since he has not been charged with a crime.
