HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. — A central Pennsylvania school district is debating whether to retain a popular swimming coach after someone complained anonymously about his job as a bartender at a strip club.
Twenty-nine-year-old Baron Leonard tells the Altoona Mirror he works two other jobs to make ends meet. That means he works four jobs, counting his $2,530-a-year part-time coaching position at Hollidaysburg Area High School and his bartending job at Club Coconuts in Altoona.
The PIAA adheres to a national code that says coaches "shall strive to set an example of the highest ethical and moral conduct." But PIAA Executive Director Bob Lombardi says that generally doesn't apply outside the sports arena and that individual school districts must make their own decisions about a coach's personal life.
