Staples, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Some call him a legendary coach, but the boy’s basketball coach at Staples High School is out of his job until further notice, pending an investigation.

Lynn Peterson has been coach for 35 years. He also holds the titles of part-time Dean and part-time Activities Director, but Superintendent Mark Schmitz says he was put on administrative leave after undisclosed allegations were made and an investigation by the school board began.

"We always take allegations seriously.”

Schmitz isn't saying what the allegations are or even what they concern, but says if parents want to know, they should ask.
