Tyler Krebs resigned from his position as the head football coach at Lakeville South and is under investigation, according to Athletics and Activities Director Tom Dasovich.

A two-line email from Lakeville Area Schools Superintendent Michael Baumann was sent to Lakeville South High School staff Monday afternoon, saying “a complaint was filed against’’ Krebs, who also is a Lakeville South High School business education teacher.

It said Krebs “has been placed on administrative leave from his teaching position pending completion of an investigation” and that Krebs had resigned his coaching position.

Baumann said the Minnesota Data Practices Act prohibited him from “divulging further information or details … at this time.”

Krebs was not on the sidelines with the Cougars in Friday’s 14-7 victory over Eastview. His resignation became effective Monday. Krebs could not be reached for comment.

Offensive coordinator Ben Burk has taken over as interim head coach.

A graduate of Lakeville High School, Krebs took over as the Lakeville South coach in 2017 and guided the Cougars to the Class 6A semifinals in 2018. He had previously been the head coach at Burnsville.

Lakeville South, 3-1, is ranked No. 9 in the Associated Press Class 6A rankings.
