BRADENTON, Fla. - A second athletic coach has come under fire at Manatee High School.

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the school's baseball program and its head coach, Dwayne Strong, are being investigated by the school district for violations linked to the program's finances and ethical decisions made by Coach Strong.

Strong has been suspended from interacting with the baseball program, and all funds and accounts have been frozen.

The Florida High School Athletic Association has been notified of the situation.

The announcement comes in the wake of an investigation into former Manatee football assistant coach Rod Frazier, who is accused of improperly touching female students.
