Houston-area coach found dead after student sex allegations

12-2-2011 Texas:

BRAZORIA COUNTY — One day after learning he was being investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor, a football coach from Clear Creek High School was found dead.

Chad Hunt's body was found Wednesday morning in his car in Brazoria County. Investigators said it appears he committed suicide.

The Clear Creek Independent School District said Hunt had been placed on administrative leave with pay Tuesday pending the outcome of the investigation.

According to League City police, the case surrounded a possible inappropriate relationship between Hunt and a female student.

Hunt was a track and football coach at Clear Creek High School. He had been with the district for five years.

School officials said a team of counselors would be on hand Thursday morning and throughout the day to talk to students and staff.

Some students who knew Hunt couldn't believe the turn of events.

"Just not to see him in school again is going to be hard," said Jose Gonzalez.

Parents called the allegations against Hunt disturbing.

"It just makes you think you can't trust anybody," said Sandy Ledford. "You just never know what's going on in their minds." ..Source.. by RUCKS RUSSELL
