School trainer accused of relationship with student

MAYFIELD -- An athletic trainer at Mayfield High School is out of a job after being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

No charges have been filed, and no arrests have been made in this case.

Because of that WKYC is not naming the athletic trainer who was employed by the Cleveland Clinic and contracted by the school.

WKYC went to his home Thursday afternoon, but he didn't want to talk and closed the door.

This isn't the first time the trainer has been accused of inappropriate behavior with students.

A memo from 2003 addresses the trainer massaging a female student's shoulder under her shirt.

It also talks about forbidding the trainer from giving out his cell phone and email to any more students.

In a statement to parents about this latest incident, Mayfield school district Superintendent Keith Kelly says:

"I have been asked what I knew and didn't know about this incident. My response is this: As soon as I was aware of any alleged inappropriate conduct, the athletic trainer was immediately dismissed."

Police say this is an ongoing investigation.

They say they sent evidence to the state crime lab, but it could take many weeks before they get the results back. That will determine if any arrests will be made.
