SALLISAW, Okla. (KFSM) — Following an investigation by the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office, Brushy girls coach Greg "Chooch" McCoy has been arrested and accused of sharing nude photos with a teen student.

An investigation showed that McCoy had traded nude photos with a teen student during Christmas break and that he pressured the victim into sending more photos of herself. The teen girl also said she was scared of McCoy and what he would do to her at school.

On Saturday, Jan. 18, McCoy was asked to come to the Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office to answer questions about the investigation.

He admitted knowing the victim and have communication with her over social media.

When asked if he had sent the victim any photos or videos, McCoy became very nervous and said he doesn't deny or confirm the images and videos he may have sent.

When asked about a specific incident with the victim where he sent a picture of his penis, McCoy said he could not remember.

Shortly after the interview deputies received a call from the Brushy Schools superintendent, who said McCoy had come to the school and resigned from his position.

The school released the following statement:

"Brushy School is committed to a safe learning environment for its students. Local law enforcement was involved after the school was notified of an allegation against an employee for inappropriate conduct with a student. The alleged employee has resigned. The District cooperated with law enforcement during its investigation of this matter. Because of the confidentiality rights of the student and the individual involved, the District cannot comment further."

McCoy was arrested on Tuesday on one count of lewd or indecent proposals/acts to a child and one count of facilitating sexual conduct with a minor.

His bond has been set at $20,000.
