A coach at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera has been terminated following an accusation of inappropriate behavior, a school district official confirmed.

Trinidad Lopez, who coached both girls and boys volleyball teams at the high school, was terminated following a district investigation. Parents were notified on Monday night, according to a source who is in touch with parents.

"The principal invited parents to the meeting to inform them that a coach was terminated from his employment at ERHS following an investigation into an accusation of inappropriate behavior," Karling Aguilera-Fort, the El Rancho Unified School District superintendent, said in an email sent to KTLA by his assistant.

Aguilera-Fort said the accusation against the coach was reported to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for further investigation.

The details into the alleged inappropriate behavior were unclear, but the source told KTLA four parents met with the school's principal, who told them about the accusations.
