VERNON HILLS, Ill. - Members of the school board in the Chicago suburb of Vernon Hills have fired an assistant soccer coach who faces sexual assault charges, reports CBS Chicago.
The Monday night vote was unanimous to fire 28-year-old Cori Beard of Vernon Hills.
In a statement to investigators, Beard admitted to having sexual relationships with three male soccer students at several different places, including her house and in cars, the station reports.
Prosecutors say they are now in the process of interviewing another three male victims, the station reports.
On Saturday, police told reporters they had launched the investigation in early March after the parent of one of the alleged victims contacted a staff member at Vernon Hills High School, where Beard is a part-time coach, reports CBS Chicago.
