A popular high school coach in Alcoa has resigned.

According to the Alcoa City School District,  Paul Talley has worked for their system since 1994.

Most recently, Talley taught U.S. History and coached Alcoa High School's softball team.

The school district said Talley resigned October 27 for health and personal reasons.

Director of Schools Dr. Brian Bell said the school district asked the Alcoa Police Department to conduct a preliminary investigation on Talley the same day the coach resigned.

Neither the school nor the police department would explain what led to the investigation.

Alcoa Police Chief Ken Burge said his department is working to determine if the issue at hand is a police matter or not.

10News checked Talley's personnel file and found one reprimand.

In 2000, the coach got in trouble for his participation in a fundraising event conducted by the softball team's booster club.

Efforts to reach Paul Talley for comment were unsuccessful.
