Former Gresham coach hired in WA, then put on leave

Posted: Updated:

A man who once coached in Gresham and was accused of having inappropriate contact with a student is in trouble again.

Court documents show that Oregon revoked Mike Allison's teaching license and he resigned from his job in Gresham in 2009.

Allison was accused of communicating inappropriately with a student and failed to tell the district that the girl had romantic feelings for him.

This summer, a high school in Everett, WA hired Allison as its head football coach.

After the allegations surfaced, the school put Allison on paid leave.

One parent in the district told reporters, "We had a parent football meeting and they just basically said they are going to stand behind the coach. So I don't know what we're going to do from here."

Allison denied the accusations against him and though he resigned, he was never arrested or charged.
