GALLATIN, TN (WSMV) -

An assistant football coach and teacher at Gallatin High School has been arrested on charges of statutory rape, according to police.

Gallatin police said they arrested Keith Duggin, who teaches social studies and coaches football at Gallatin High School, on Wednesday on the charge after a relationship with a 17-year-old former student at the school.

Police said the relationship began earlier this year between Duggin, 28, and the student and culminated in a physical relationship this summer at the coach's apartment in Gallatin.

The victim disclosed her affair with the coach to a couple of her friends, according to police. A teacher at the school discovered the information and reported it to the school's SRO.

Duggin was charged with two counts of aggravated statutory rape. He was released on a $10,000 bond.
