KETK Sports was the first to report that the John Tyler boys basketball coach is on administrative leave because of an investigation by the Tyler Independent School District.
Today, Tony Pinson told our news partner, KTBB Radio, that he is retaining legal counsel.
Pinson told Mike Alzamora that he was not at liberty to discuss being placed on administrative leave.
He said the situation has taken a great toll on his family.
The coach said he was hospitalized for five days with congestive heart failure.
TISD cannot discuss the details of the investigation.
