Longview Swim Coach Resigns

After an internal investigation over unspecified charges, a Longview high school coach is resigning from his position. 70 year old Don Easterling, the Longview swimming coach for the past 5 years, has turned in his resignation, effective May 31st.

An investigation was launched three weeks ago after witness reports the coach had weapons in his school office. School officials began the investigation when a witness reported Easterling kept a crossbow in his office.

The coach has been on paid administrative leave since February 24th.
