JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A Jackson high school has parted ways with a soccer coach after a mother complained he sent inappropriate texts to her 14-year-old daughter.

WLBT-TV (https://bit.ly/1wqtcix ) reports the woman, who requested anonymity to protect her daughter, became concerned by texts the Wingfield High School coach sent.

The daughter gave the coach her mother’s number when the coach requested the student’s cellphone number.

The mother says the coach sent 11 text messages in 24 hours, including two saying he wanted to recreate pictures of showering women. The mother says the coach told her daughter she was beautiful and wanted to photograph her.

The student and mother reported the texts to Wingfield’s principal and a police report was filed.

A Jackson Public Schools spokesman says the coach is no longer employed after investigation.
