Dexter Davidson was dismissed Wednesday from Lenoir City H.S. after alligations over text messages he allegedly had with a 17-year-old female student.

A Lenior City High School coach and aide has been fired after allegations over text messages he allegedly sent to a 17-year-old female student.

Lenior City Schools were first notified on Monday night about the messages sent by Dexter Davidson, 27, of Knox County.

According to Superintendent Wayne Miller, Davidson had not been at the school very long. He was last an in-school suspension monitor and an Assistant Coach to the basketball and football teams.

Davidson was fired on Wednesday. "He crossed the line to what's appropriate to adult-student contact," explained Miller.

The case has been handed over to the Lenior City Police. They have not filed charges yet, pending further investigations.

"The investigation is still open," said Lenior City Police Chief Don White. "But with electronic devices, we have to have evidence to issue a warrant and currently, we don't have the evidence to make that happen."

Chief White wants a subpoena to get the phone records involved.
