Ex-Bingham coach target of investigation

Ex-Bingham coach target of investigation

SOUTH JORDAN Utah (ABC 4 News) - Details behind a coach's resignation last month are now surfacing.
SOUTH JORDAN Utah (ABC 4 News) – Money and verbal abuse may be behind the resignation of a popular Bingham High School basketball coach.

Mark Dubach coached Bingham high boys for the past 13 years.

But last month he turned in his resignation after an internal investigation.

“Part of the complaint involved financial, outside of the district policy,” says Sandy Riesgraf of the Jordan School District.

The allegations against the head of boy’s basketball program involved money to use the gym. According to the Deseret News, a parent allegedly gave him $800 to use the gym for a youth basketball program.

“We asked the coach about it we looked into it several days he resigned his position as a coach and a teacher,” says Riesgraf.

The district would not comment about allegations of verbal abuse. Riesgraf says the district turned over their findings to the South Jordan police department for possible criminal charges.

ABC4 News found Dubach at his home in South Jordan. But he wouldn't say why he chose to resign instead of fight the allegations.

“I really don't have any comment about this,” he says. “I've left Bingham and I want everybody to move forward and that's all I have to say."

A spokesman for the police department says their investigation is just beginning and it could take two weeks before deciding if criminal charges should filed.
