Story: Ricky Manning Jr. is out as Edison High School head coach
A Fresno Unified spokesperson said Manning's contract ended in November and now the position is being posted as a vacancy. But all of this comes as we get new details about the results of a Fresno Police Investigation.
That investigation began on January 22, when a school resource officer at Edison alerted investigators to allegations involving inappropriate text messages between Manning and a 16 year old student. "I reviewed those text messages and I would say they were inappropriate text messages between a student and a school staff member," said Sgt. Nina Jacobs with the Fresno Police Department.
