A former football coach and teacher accused of sexually assaulting a child in northwest Iowa has been convicted of a similar crime in Nebraska.

Court records say 39-year-old Kyle Ewinger was found guilty Tuesday of sexual assault in Omaha.

Prosecutors say that in 2012 and 2013, he assaulted the 9-year-old son of a woman he was dating.

Ewinger’s sentencing is scheduled for March 28th.

Iowa court records say the Sibley-Ocheyedan coach was fired after the district superintendent found Ewinger sleeping in his classroom next to a 10-year-old in October 2015.

Ewinger has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault.

His trial in Osceola County is set to begin April 10th.
