A high school wrestling coach accused of sexually harassing female students has resigned from his job. It’s a story unfolding in the Mayes County town of Pryor.

School officials say Chris Barbee stepped down this week. Parents allege he acted improperly toward their daughters during the state wrestling tournament in Oklahoma City last week. Barbee's accused of keeping a key to the hotel room of the cheerleaders and walking in on them.

Barbee coached the team for four years. He couldn't be reached for comment.
