    Girls' Soccer Coach Under Arrest

    The principal of Del Norte High School in Poway notified parents that a man described as a "walk-on girls' freshman soccer coach" has been removed from any duties after allegations of inappropriate behavior surfaced.

    Robin Alarcon sent possible inappropriate text messages to a student on Tuesday evening, according to police.

    The school immediately notified law enforcement who then arrested the coach at the high school, according to Greg Mizel, principal of Del Norte.

    It wasn't until Jan. 6 that the district learned of the allegations and they said they released him of all duties with students and the schools.

    According to a statement posted on the Poway Unified School District's web site, Alarcon "cleared Megan's Law and Department of Justice fingerprint background checks... completed the required CIF coaches training program."

    Alarcon had served at other high schools in the district as a walk-on coach and as an hourly P.E. assistant, according to the district.

    Alarcon was booked into the San Diego Central Jail and has been charged with sending harmful matter to a minor and communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a sexual act. Alarcon’s bail is set at $75,000 and he is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday, Jan. 8, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 12 of the San Diego Superior Court downtown.

    Alarcon was also the girls’ lacrosse coach at Mt. Carmel High School in the Rancho Penasquitos community and is a girls’ club soccer coach for a team in Rancho Penasquitos, according to investigators.
