Former high school coach pleads guilty to sex abuse charges

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A former Portland high school coach now admits he sexually abused a teenage girl on his track team. 

Deonte Huff pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of 2nd degree sex abuse and luring a minor. 

Huff was a track coach at Catlin Gabel School until police arrested him earlier this year. 

Huff coached the victim until this past spring, when detectives found out that he'd been abusing her at his apartment. 

During the investigation, authorities also learned Huff was having inappropriate relationships with two other students. 

Per his plea deal, Huff will serve more than one year behind bars.

He will be sentenced next month.
