ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Two Florida high school football coaches are facing federal drug trafficking charges.

A news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Orlando says 40-year-old Leonard Charles Agee Jr. and 36-year-old Benjamin S. Jenkins were arrested Wednesday and charged with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute controlled substances. They each face up to 20 years in prison.

A criminal complaint says Agee started selling heroin to a confidential informant in September 2015. Authorities say he also had been selling cocaine and marijuana. Investigators say Jenkins sold cocaine and prescription pills on multiple occasions in the same year.

Brevard Public Schools posted a statement on its website saying both men have been relieved of coaching and other duties at Titusville High School. They have been placed on administrative leave pending termination.
