Barnum football coach resigns after allegations

Barnum teacher and varsity football coach Kevin Haley submitted his resignation Tuesday after an internal investigation into allegations brought forth against him.

Barnum Principal Steve Brandt confirmed the resignation Tuesday night, but could not comment further because of privacy laws.

Haley was placed on paid administrative leave from teaching social studies on March 7 for undisclosed reasons. An internal investigation was subsequently conducted, but Brandt wouldn't say what the result was of that investigation.

The School Board had taken action on the matter March 20, according to the Cloquet Pine Journal, passing a resolution approving a letter to be personally served to Haley setting forth the proposed discipline and the basis for that discipline.

Haley had an 84-56 record in 14 seasons coaching the Bombers and was a teacher in the school district for the past 15 years.
