BURLINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A former University of Cincinnati football player will spend five years behind bars after pleading guilty to having sex with a high school student.

Jason Collins-Baker was a teacher and track coach at Cooper High School in Union when he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student at the school.

He must register as a sex offender when he is released from prison.

He was arrested in June of 2009, soon after the teen had graduated. Police say the two would meet at Collins-Baker's home and there was no inappropriate behavior on school grounds other than discreet communication.
