In Pleasant Hill, California, Kyle Lee Whitmore taught communications courses at Diablo Valley College.

Whitmore, who was hired by DVC in July 2014, is also a track and field coach.

At the time, he said of his employment: “I’ve always had an eye on the Contra Costa Community College District.”

“I always watched to see if anything would come open.

“It was a very difficult decision to make because of the relationships I’ve built with my current athletes,” he concluded to Mercury News.

“We ask the community to be patient and allow processes to move forward without making assumptions or contributing to speculation.

“The District is devastated by the seriousness of the allegations that have been raised thus far.

“The safety of our students and staff is our main priority.

“We take seriously any accusations of inappropriate behavior by our employees and honor the expectation that our students, staff, and visitors have to be safe when they visit our campuses.”

The college further stated: “The District is grateful to staff who, through proper training, were able to identify a serious situation and quickly report it to our Police Services, who subsequently communicated with the Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney.”
