Local swim coach Rick Curl was banned from the sport for life on Wednesday, after accusations that he molested a swimmer back in the 1980s.

Curl waived his right to appear before swimming's National Board of Review today and was immediately banned.

A former swimmer named Kelley Davis Currin came forward recently and said Curl began molesting her when she was 13.

She said she received a $150,000 settlement from Curl years ago, in exchange for not telling police the details.

Rick Curl was a founder of the Curl Burke swim club, but he is no longer affiliated with it. The group has been renamed.
