CEDAR PARK, Texas (AP) - A boys cross country coach at a Central Texas high school has been charged with three counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact.

Cedar Park police on Wednesday arrested 50-year-old Timothy Sheard (sheerd), who was released hours later on $75,000 bond.

Online Williamson County jail records do not list an attorney for Sheard, who coaches at Cedar Park High School. A spokeswoman for the Leander Independent School District says Sheard has been on paid administrative leave since Sept. 25.

Police say the investigation began last month after a former student reported an alleged sexual incident with a school employee. Police also interviewed two other former students who alleged they were victims in similar incidents since 2003.

No publicly listed telephone number could immediately be located Thursday for Sheard.
