      Edcouch-Elsa coach cleared of wrong doing, resigns

      Edcouch-Elsa school board meeting

      The former high school head baseball coach, Sergio Rubio, decided to part ways with Edcouch-Elsa ISD and resigned at Wednesday TMs board meeting.

      School board members for the Edcouch-Elsa ISD started off the special meeting with a closed session to decide Rubio's fate.

      He and his attorney had filed a grievance to get his job as head baseball coach back following his suspension over school bus video which allegedly shows sex acts between two students after a game.

      After about 20 minute, the school board and Rubio reached an agreement.

      The board voted unanimously to clear him of any wrong doing, and accept his resignation.

      Following the board decision, Action 4 News also caught up with Sabrina Franco, the wife of the assistant coach George Franco, who was fired following this scandal.

      It all started back in early April when two students were caught in a sexual act on board on bus.

      The board said then that both men were responsible for the students actions.

      Rubio held back tears as he spoke about growing up and working in Edcouch-Elsa.

      He thanked his supporters and students.
