Former Holliday Softball Coach David Norris is out of a job after resigning Thursday. Several law enforcement agencies are investigating Norris for allegations of inappropriate relations with one or more students.

Archer County Sgt. Simon Dwyer says an arrest warrant will likely be made later this week. The Archer County Sheriff's Office, Holliday Police Department and Wichita Falls Police Department are all taking part in the investigation. This is because there being separate alleged offenses in different jurisdictions.

Allegations of David Norris having improper relations with a student or students at Holliday ISD have the town on edge. Residents Newschannel 6 spoke with off camera say it's an embarrassment to the community and a disappointment.

Norris is a graduate of Holliday ISD and Midwestern State University. Newschannel 6 tried to reach Norris on his cell phone for comment but that number is not longer in service.

Holliday ISD Superintendent Kevin Dyes left an open letter to the community and staff on the school website.

"When someone breaks that trust (as has been alleged) we all feel a great sadness because that trusting relationship with students and parents is at the heart of who we are and what we do individually and collectively," wrote Dyes.

As required by law Dyes filed a report with the State Board For Educator Certification in regards to possible educator misconduct.
