Neshaminy School District officials are looking into an allegation that longtime Neshaminy head football coach Mark Schmidt acted inappropriately toward a player during last Friday night's game versus visiting Council Rock South.
"I can confirm to you that district officials are aware of an alleged incident that took place in last week's football game involving a Neshaminy player and a member of our coaching staff," school board president Ritchie Webb said Tuesday afternoon, reading from a prepared statement.
"District officials are currently collecting facts surrounding the alleged incident and will take any appropriate actions as outlined by the Neshaminy school district policy."
Schmidt, a health and physical education teacher at the high school, declined to comment. Athletic director Tom Magdelinskas did not return a phone call seeking comment.
