PITTSBURG, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas coach and teacher has resigned after accusations of unprofessional behavior.

Several parents contacted KLTV with information that Dickson was texting with a female student. The ISD confirms that he was suspended Thursday for unprofessional conduct for texting with a student. The school says they were not sexual in nature.
