WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita youth volleyball coach has been arrested on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a child.

The Wichita Eagle reports that records show Jeffrey Sanders was booked Friday into the Sedgwick County jail and released on bond the same day. He was arrested on suspicion of electronic solicitation of a 16-year-old victim, and the incident report shows the alleged offense occurred in February 2017.

Sanders formed the Wichita Volleyball Academy in 2014 and it operates as a competitive club team for Wichita-area volleyball players from ages 10 to 18. The academy’s website says Sanders offered private and semi-private lessons.

Sanders coached at Wichita State for 10 seasons, but left the program after an arrest of suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
