WILKES-BARRE — Newswatch 16 has learned that Coughlin High School’s dean of students was placed on unpaid leave Friday morning.

The solicitor for Wilkes-Barre Area School District says the decision was made after learning that Steve Stahl was under investigation for alleged misconduct with a student nearly a decade ago.

At this point, no charges have been filed.

Stahl is also the wrestling coach at Coughlin High School in Wilkes-Barre.

    Pshhh when I was a student there “nearly a decade ago” when the alleged misconduct took place, the majority of the student body knew Stahl would have “8th period detentions” with girls in his classroom. Hell one was openly dating him as well!
