Fred J Robledo is all over this on his prep sports blog, where there are some interesting comments, including one casting aspersions on Fred’s reporting ability.
For the record, we ran the story on the news side after Fred got a tip about Coberly. The same story ran in the Daily Bulletin. We weren’t “scooped.”
This from Tania Chatila’s story in today’s paper:
LA VERNE – Police are investigating allegations that a Bonita High School girls volleyball coach behaved inappropriately with a player, police and school officials said Wednesday.
La Verne police Lt. Jim Strona confirmed a complaint was filed, but declined to give more specific information.
School officials said the allegations were made against Morgan Coberly, who is also listed as a coach at the Claremont Colleges and at a private club in La Verne.
Reached by phone Wednesday, Coberly, who is from La Verne, denied the allegations.
“No, they are not true,” he said, “and I don’t want to talk about anything until the investigation is over.”
Here’s video from the web featuring Coberly and some of the Bonita players:
