Lampasas girls basketball coach Mark Myers is on administrative leave from school while an investigation into inappropriate “communication” with a student continues, District Superintendent Chain Raskow said Wednesday.
Myers was sent on leave on Monday.
“Now this is a non-criminal investigation,” Rasko said. “We reported everything to TEA (Texas Education Agency), as required, and we got the police department involved. So far, no charges have been filed. That’s where we are now.”
Ruscoe declined to give details of the allegations against Myers, who has been with Lampasas since 2017. During his coaching career, he won over 900 victories.

Meanwhile, the Badgers are 22-9 this season with a 2-1 record in the 24-4A district. The team is led by Maisie Seigert, one of Myers’ assistant coaches. Myers missed the team’s last two games.
Myers has had many stops in his career, which began at Waco Vanguard in 1983 after he graduated from Baylor. He has also coached at Bremond, Sweeney and Cedar Park. He left Cedar Park in 2016, citing “constant stress” at work. A year later, he became a coach at Lampasas.
