Former Bison assistant resigns as prep coach after prostitution arrest

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. — A Minnesota high school football coach has resigned after his arrest in a prostitution sting.

A spokeswoman for Hill-Murray High School says 54-year-old Mark Mauer resigned Tuesday as head coach and as a major-gifts officer for the Maplewood school. The spokeswoman tells the Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/WpxHqC) Mauer was not a teacher at the school.

Mauer was one of 19 men and four women arrested last week in a two-day undercover sting at a Fridley hotel. The men are cited with a misdemeanor of solicitation and the women with a misdemeanor of prostitution.

Mauer is a former North Dakota State assistant football coach.

A message left on Mauer's home phone was not immediately returned Tuesday.

Mauer is a cousin of Minnesota Twins star Joe Mauer.
