HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. — A Colorado high school football coach has resigned after moving a player’s car out of the school parking lot when he learned a drug-sniffing dog was coming to the school.

KMGH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2gDeFzE ) Highlands Ranch High School coach Mark Robinson drove a player’s car away from the school parking lot and to his house nearby on Aug. 24 after learning Douglas County sheriff’s deputies were on their way with a drug-sniffing dog.

A sheriff’s report indicated a deputy had the dog sniff around the player’s vehicle and the dog indicated there were drugs inside. The student declined to allow the deputy to search the vehicle and no charges were filed.

Robinson resigned the next day, telling school officials and parents that he was “slipping” in his duties as coach.
