    The arrest affidavit said the incidents occurred at Hunt Elementary between December 2009 and February 2010.

    The arrest affidavit said that in an interview with the victim, she said when she was in kindergarten Reich would rub her back, in first grade she said the back rub moved further down to her "behind."

    According to the affidavit the victim told investigators Reich would take her into his coaches' office and shut the door making her feel comfortable. She told authorities that's where more inappropriate touching happened.

    The victim told investigators Reich threatened to kill her, her parents and their dog if she told anyone.

    The young girl also told investigators that Reich had been warned by the school principal to have no contact with the girl, and if he needed to have contact with her to have someone else present, but Reich continued to violate the principal's warning.

    Reich bonded out on Wednesday. He is currently on paid leave from the school district.

    The Plano Independent School District sent a letter home to parents letting them know about the incident.
