Edcouch I.S.D. Fires Baseball Coach
EDCOUCH — An attorney for the Edcouch-Elsa school district says a baseball coach was fired after an alleged sex act on a school bus between two students and not stopping the act.
The incident occurred a month ago after a game in Rio Grande City and the video on the bus shows a sexual act between a 18 year-old female student and a 17 year-old male athlete. The school district attorney says the assistant coach, George Franco, sat behind the students and did nothing about it. The district did fire Franco and have suspended head coach Sergio Rubio with Child Protective Services and the Edcouch Police department investigating the incident.
