Sanger Coach Placed On Leave

4-04-05 – The head coach of the Sanger High School girls basketball team has been placed on paid administrative leave after accusations that she had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student. Bambi Ferguson was jailed on $10,000 bond on Friday.

An investigation by school authorities and law enforcement is currently being conducted.

An affidavit filed by Texas Rangers says the investigation began when Ferguson told someone at practice that she was sexually active with a juvenile, even pointing the girl out.

The girl admitted to authorities to several sexual encounters with the coach.

In 2001, an assistant principal at Sanger’s intermediate school pled guilty to sexual misconduct with children.
