COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Colerain High School coach has resigned after the district received allegations of inappropriate conduct with a student.

Northwest Local Schools Superintendent Tom Bowling posted a statement on the district's website Thursday.

"Recently the district received allegations of inappropriate conduct between a student and a Colerain High School coach off school grounds," the statement reads. "The district immediately took action to initiate an investigation, contacted the local police, and notified Children's Services."

FOX19 NOW obtained a copy of an email written by Nicholas Priessman, in which he resigned from the Colerain football "staff effective immediately."

The email was dated September 26.

The statement on the district's website goes on to say the employee has been banned from school property, as well as prohibited from communicating with students and staff.

"We will do everything within our power to deal with the issues surrounding the violations related to district policy and state law to protect our students," the statement reads.

"The Cincinnati Police Department Personal Crimes Unit is investigating an allegation related to this story," said a statement from the Cincinnati Police Department.
