EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, La. (WAFB) - Taylor Wilson, a 20-year-old volunteer high school football coach at Central High School, admitted to sending inappropriate Snapchat messages to two 16-year-old students, according to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Central Community School System Superintendent Jason Fountain told WAFB Wilson was a volunteer coach at Central High School during the 2018-2019 school year and continued in that capacity for the 2019-2020 school year. He additionally substituted for two days at a different school.

Fountain says Wilson is no longer serving in any capacity with the school system.

On Friday, Dec. 6, an EBRSO detective met with the students and school administration at the high school about a report of Wilson, sending the inappropriate messages.

One of the students told the detective that Wilson asked the student to send a picture of him naked. The student refused to send a picture, but Wilson continued to ask for pictures, according to the incident report.

The other student told the detective that Wilson also asked for nude pictures, and continued to ask for them after the student refused.

During an interview with the detective, Wilson admitted to asking for pictures from one student on Dec. 3 and the other student on Dec. 4.

Wilson was then placed under arrest and charged with a count of indecent behavior with juveniles. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish prison.

Fountain told WAFB the system has attempted to contact the parents of any students in the classes where Wilson was a substitute to make certain they are aware of the situation. The ongoing investigation is being handled by the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Fountain also noted Wilson has never been a full-time employee of the school system.
