Former Hays CISD coach arrested for child porn possession

Kyle police arrested a Hays CISD coach after they say his wife found child pornography on his phone. The images were of one of his former students. 

On Saturday night Lehman High School coach Jonathan Proud posted on Twitter "I love my job and my Lobos!" after what he described as a successful power-lifting meet. Hours later Kyle police say Proud's wife discovered text messages on his phone from a juvenile he coached prior to coming to Hays CISD.

The texts included two nude photos.

Police say the wife reached out to the teen who said Proud began sending her inappropriate texts in 2016.

The wife also spoke with Proud about the messages. She says he told her he only texts the teen when he's drunk. The wife told police she wanted to alert them because Proud coaches girls the same age as the victim.

On Wednesday Proud was booked into the Hays County Jail for possession of child pornography.

District officials say Proud has resigned from his position. He was hired in 2016 and was currently serving as the interim athletic coordinator.
