Brett Crutchfield's tenure as Crown Point teacher and softball coach is over.
A statement provided to The Times on Tuesday from the school district's administration center said Crutchfield resigned last week.
"The Crown Point Community School Corporation administration has received the resignation of Mr. Brett Crutchfield. The resignation is effective May 4, 2012 and applies to any and all duties, rights and responsibilities stipulated within the Regular Teacher Contract, including all teaching and extra-curricular assignments."
A phone call to Crutchfield on Tuesday night was not returned.
Crutchfield was escorted out of the building on April 13. An investigation of alleged misconduct was undertaken by the school district and the Crown Point police.
No information from the investigation has been released.
On April 27 Crown Point Police Chief Pete Land said in a statement, "The Crown Point Police Department is continuing to work with and share information with the Crown Point School Corp. on the reported situation involving a Crown Point High School teacher," Land said in his statement. "Our investigators have met with school officials, and the Police Department is taking all necessary steps to obtain any and all information available related to the matter.
"Our agency will carefully review all information supplied to us as well as any additional information that we may learn apart from the school. At this point, all information known and confirmed by our investigators does not indicate any criminal laws were violated."
Crutchfield was an assistant coach at Andrean before getting hired at Crown Point in 2007 as a science teacher and the head softball coach.
With a lot of talent coming into the program it didn't take long for the Bulldogs to turn things around on the diamond. In 2010, C.P. was ranked No. 1 in the state.
But a huge upset in the sectional cost Crutchfield his first sectional championship. Last spring the Bulldogs won their first sectional title under Crutchfield, but were beaten by Lake Central in the regional.
Ginger Britton has been C.P.'s interim coach since Crutchfield was removed.
