Coach Roanhaus in the dog haus

Miyamura High School's head coach John Roanhaus was allegedly filmed stealing money out of a football player's wallet in the school's locker room, according to a press release issued by New Mexico State Police Oct. 7.

State Police said the burglary was reported to them on Oct. 2, but didn't indicate who initially filed the report. From there, on Oct. 4, an arrest warrant was issued for Roanhaus, 42, who is listed as residing in Clovis, N.M. He was arrested without incident, and booked into the McKinley County Detention Center on one count of burglary, a fourth degree felony, and larceny, a petty misdemeanor.

Gallup McKinley County Schools Superintendent Mike Hyatt said Roanhaus was terminated last week for "misconduct." David Foley was named the new head football coach for Miyamura High.
