Edna High School Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Jerry Long submitted his resignation this week amid an investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office alleging inappropriate messaging with a female school student.

Sheriff J.D. Louderback said they received a call about the massaging, and they are conducting an investigation. Edna Independent School District officials are looking for a replacement for Long. No other details have been released about the investigation.

The team's record was 12-2 last year, and the coaches record was 20-7 over his time with the Cowboys. In 2012, Long coached East Bernardo to the Class 2A, Division II title.
