A former Sibley-Ocheyedan football coach and teacher fired after the superintendent found him sleeping in his classroom next to a 10-year-old has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault.
Court records say 39-year-old Kyle Ewinger entered the written plea Wednesday in Osceola County District Court.
Ewinger was fired after he was found with the boy sleeping on an air mattress.
A criminal complaint says the boy reported that Ewinger had performed a sex act on him.
His trial is scheduled to begin October 17th.
Nebraska court records say Ewinger has pleaded not guilty a charge of sexually assaulting a child in Douglas County.
No trial has yet been scheduled for that case.
