Calif. coach accused of sexually assaulting student

STOCKTON, Calif. -- A former California sheriff's deputy and college coach is accused of sexually assaulting a student athlete, reports CBS Sacramento.

Donald Tisher, a track and field coach at San Joaquin Delta College, allegedly sexually assaulted the student in her Stockton home, the station reports, citing the Stockton Police Department. The victim was unconscious during the alleged attack, the DA tells the station.

School officials reportedly did not return repeated calls about Tisher's employment status.

Tisher was arraigned Wednesday and is being held without bail, reports the paper.

Stockton is about 50 miles south of Sacramento.
