STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.– Two female former basketball coaches at Moore Catholic High School are accused of having sexual relationships with students, and the NYPD is investigating the allegations, according to a report Saturday in the New York Post.

Megan Mahoney, 25, who was an assistant basketball coach and gym teacher at the Graniteville school, is accused of having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student that lasted months, and Moore’s athletic director, Richard Postiglione, allegedly failed to report the the accusation, the article states.

The report said Postiglione and the principal, Bob Manisero, both knew about the allegations of faculty-student relationships.

The Post reports that the boy’s mother claims she informed the Archdiocese in April, but got no reply. The Archdiocese told the paper it contacted the Staten Island District Attorney’s office when it learned of the allegations.
