Former Middle School Coach Behind Bars

Ryan Ashley Glenn, the former 7th grade football coach from Frenship ISD has been booked into the Lubbock County Jail. He's booked on charges of possession of marijuana - possession of dangerous drugs - and possession of a controlled substance.

It was Thursday night when Lubbock Police raided Glenn's home near Higginbothem Park off 19th Street. Police seized heroin, hydro-marijuana, marijuana plants and a large sum of money. However the bust really started Wednesday afternoon when police busted Glenn and another man for attempting to mail these drugs. And Friday morning - Glenn resigned as a high school teacher and middle school coach in Frenship ISD.

"As of today, Mr. Glenn is no longer employed by Frenship ISD as a resignation has been submitted. The district has no evidence that during his employment that Mr. Glenn engaged in any illegal activity during school time," said Linsae Snider with Frenship ISD.

And these alleged crimes have neighbors and former students shocked.

"The guy that lived here is very polite, very nice guy, always very courteous to us when he'd see us. And that he was involved in something of this nature is kind of a shock. You just don't expect it," said neighbor Tom Chadwick.

8th grader Cayman Ancell played football for Glenn at Frenship middle school last year. He says he was looking forward to playing for Glenn again this season.

"We're all just shocked when we heard this. He told us to work hard and when I heard this, you know I was just disappointed in him," Ancell said.

Glenn has been living in Lubbock since 1998 and has coached at Frenship Middle School and taught at the high school for the last two years.
