Roman Catholic's first-year athletic director has been relieved of his duties due to allegations of "inappropriate conduct via computer technology with a minor," according to a statement released Monday by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

The statement said the school recieved an allegation late last week that Sean Fitzherbert had engaged in inappropriate conduct with a Father Judge student. The information, per Archdiocesan policy, was shared with the Philadelphia Police, who will handle the investigation.

Fitzherbert is on administrative leave. He was hired in July. According to the statement, his criminal records checks and child abuse clearances were obtained before he was hired.
