URBANDALE (KWWL) -

An Urbandale assistant track coach accused of sending sexually explicit messages to a teenager has resigned.

33-year-old Chad Ziesman, who coached the girls team, has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor. He's pleaded not guilty.

Ziesman reportedly resigned his post at Urbandale Middle School and the school board accepted the resignation on Monday.

Ziesman also was a substitute teacher.

The Urbandale Police Department says a 14-year-old girl told school officials she received inappropriate text and email messages from Ziesman.

He's due back in court on July 15.
