Serious allegations: Two former female basketball coaches at Staten Island's Moore Catholic are alleged to have had sexual relationships with students, and the New York Police Department is investigating, the New York Post reported.
Megan Mahoney, 25, who was an assistant basketball coach and gym teacher at the school, is accused of having a long-term sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy, and AD Richard Postiglione allegedly failed to report the accusation, the paper reported. Mahoney, who resigned from the school in January, denied the allegations.
The report said Postiglione and the principal, Bob Manisero, both knew about the allegations of faculty-student relationships. Officials of the New York Archdiocese said contacted the Staten Island District Attorney's office when informed of the allegations by the boy's mother.
The paper reported accusations of a relationship between Mahoney, who was also an assistant AD, and another student date back to 2012, and several years earlier another female coach under Postiglione was accused of sleeping with a student.
