An East Texas coach and teacher has resigned after accusations of unprofessional behavior.

Colby Dickson, a 26-year-old science teacher and football coach for Pittsburg Independent School District, resigned Friday after he was suspended for "unprofessional conduct."

Several parents contacted KLTV with information that Dickson was texting with a female student. The ISD confirms that he was suspended Thursday for unprofessional conduct for texting with a student. The school says they were not sexual in nature.
