FRIDLEY, Minn. (AP) — A high school football coach who is also the cousin of Minnesota Twins player Joe Mauer has been cited in connection with a prostitution sting outside of Minneapolis.

KARE-TV reports (http://kare11.tv/YtgfBb) Mark Mauer was one of 19 men and four women arrested in the two-day undercover sting at a Fridley hotel.

The 54-year-old is the head coach of the Hill-Murray High School team in Maplewood.

The men are cited with a misdemeanor of solicitation and the women with a misdemeanor of prostitution.

According to Fridley police, Mauer allegedly agreed to pay an undercover officer $100 for a half hour of "full service" on Tuesday.

A phone listing could not be found for Mauer on Saturday by The Associated Press. He didn't answer when KARE-TV called his cell phone Friday.
