Former coach accused in rape case banned from property

A Valley coach accused of raping a teenage student is off the job.

Kyle Rae is no longer an assistant football coach at Clements High School.

In fact, he's been banned from any and all Limestone County School property.

Rae was arrested Friday on charges that he had sex with a 15-year-old Clements High student.

Rae says it was consensual but the teen isn't of age to say "yes" so Rae is charged with rape.

Superintendent Barry Carroll says the school system is appalled and outraged.

"Obviously this type of conduct is inappropriate and will not be tolerated by our school system," says Carroll.

Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely says Rae admitted to having sex with the teen and that the alleged incident took place at the coach's home.

The Limestone County School Board called a special meeting Monday morning to accept Rae's resignation.

"Mr. Rea did cross the line. That's obviously inappropriate what he's done. We are deeply concerned and disturbed by it," says Carroll.

According to Carroll, a background check was done on Rae before he was hired with Limestone County.

His status was cleared by the FBI and ABI.

The board has also submitted a report of the incident to Dr. Joe Morton, Alabama State Superintendent, who will make a decision whether to revoke Rae's teacher certification.
