A former swimming coach at Allen Park High School who is accused of inappropriate behavior with one of his students was back in court on Monday morning.

Tyler Card, 26, is accused sending sexually explicit text messages to a female student through the app Snapchat.

The victim in the case is a sophomore and member of the girls swim team. Card was fired last Monday.

According to the police report, Card was sending the messages last month and even asked the teen to send him nude photos.
