Holy Cross of San Antonio says a coach has resigned from his position following allegations that were presented to the school by the San Antonio Archdiocese.

According to a statement from principal Dr. Rene Escobedo, the allegation involved a coach, identified as Ruben Calderon.

The school states Calderon was placed on administrative leave on October 13; Calderon later resigned on November 6.

The statement also references that it is "in full cooperation with Providence as they investigate what transpired on their campus more than 20 years ago."

On November 6, Providence Catholic School officials announced an independent investigation found sexual misconduct allegations against a former employee to be credible, although the school did not name the former employee.

The Holy Cross Alumni association issued its own statement, adding that the allegation involving Calderon dated back to his time as a teacher at Providence.

It's important to note Calderon has not been arrested or charged in connection with the allegation.
