VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - The state auditor’s office has issue a civil demand of $11,756 against former Vicksburg High School football coach and sitting school board member Alonzo Stevens.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering announced the demand letter Monday in a news release. The amount represents $6,237 in principal plus interest and investigative costs.

Stevens tells The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1JRTfZN ) that he will not comment.

It is unclear from Pickering’s news release what the funds were intended for or how they were apparently misappropriated.

Stevens was head coach of the Vicksburg Gators from 2001 to 2011. He retired in May 2012 and was elected that same year to the Vicksburg-Warren School Board. Stevens had 30 years’ experience as a teacher and coach in the school district.

School Board president Bryan Pratt also declined comment.
