WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Serious charges are filed against a Waterloo East High School teacher and coach, who is now out of a job.

Dan Ankrum has been accused of having sexual contact with a 16-year-old.

Ankrum was a family and consumer science teacher at East High. He was also the head girls cross country coach and an assistant track coach.

The victim told officials they had sexual contact seven or eight times this year.

A Waterloo School District representative says they put Ankrum on administrative leave as soon as they learned about the allegations in April.

He was taken out of the classroom and could no longer coach. They are now interviewing for his replacement.

Ankrum has been charged with sexual exploitation.
