The head coach of a Prince George's County high school football team is accused of having an inappropriate interaction with a student.
Tarrell Carlos Lockwood was placed on leave at DuVal High School in Lanham pending an investigation into the alleged inappropriate contact, school officials said in a letter sent to parents Wednesday.
Prince George's County police said the alleged contact was nothing physical and it involved a female student.
Lockwood has not been criminally charged at this time, but police are investigating.
Child Protection Services has also launched a separate investigation.
Lockwood serves as the head coach for the school's varsity football team and the in-school suspension coordinator.
A source close to the investigation said the investigation involves inappropriate text messages.
