Edna coach arrested and charged Friday

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office confirming Jerry Long was arrested today and charged with having an inappropriate relationship with a student.

His bond was set at $50,000 which was paid immediately.

The former coach in the Edna ISD resigned earlier this week.

By law, the district is required to notify the state board for educator certification under the Texas Education Agency and Children’s Protective Services.

Edna ISD board members will meet next week to determine the future of his now vacant position.
