A Sapulpa coach was found dead the day he was charged with second-degree rape in Creek County. Creek County District Attorney Max Cook confirms Brad Alan Evans was charged in connection to a relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Cook said the early indications are that Evans, 38, committed suicide, but the death will be investigated. 

The charges against Evans were rescinded Friday after word of his death, Cook said.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, the coach's wife discovered the girl in their mobile home March 3, 2015. The student told police Evans was her softball coach at Sapulpa High School and that she had sex with him that night and on another occasion in February.

The girl also told police she drank five mixed drinks at his home, court records state.

Officers say her class ring was found on a night stand in the bedroom when they executed a search warrant.

The Sapulpa School superintendent said Evans was a paraprofessional who had been with the district for about 18 months.

Evans is listed on the school website as the girls fastpitch/slowpitch softball coach. He was also an assistant coach for the baseball team.

A search of Department of Corrections records showed he was incarcerated in 2005 for possession of a controlled drug.

A protective order against Evans was also filed Thursday, March 5, 2015, in Creek County.
