Report: Ex-Montana women's soccer coach texted escorts

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A newspaper has reported that former University of Montana women's soccer coach Mark Plakorus exchanged hundreds of text messages with escorts using his university-issued cellphone during Las Vegas recruiting trips.

The Missoulian obtained the information with a public records request.

University officials said they did not have access to the messages, but the newspaper reported Friday the numbers matched with 10 escorts.

The 491 texts date to February 2015 and centered around six recruiting trips to Las Vegas.

The university announced Plakorus' departure Jan. 30 after an investigation that began with player complaints about Plakoros texting them excessively and at inappropriate times.

Plakorus told the newspaper in February it was his choice how to use personal time on recruiting trips.

He acknowledged violating university policy by using his work cellphone.

    Creeks run high in the southwest corner of the state today as rain continues to fall. Flood watches are in effect from Missoula to Butte, which is causing emergency crews to urge people to be careful when driving near flooded roadways. And in Bozeman, the rivers are getting colder and have a potential for high and fast-moving water. Although water levels in the Bozeman area have slightly dropped in recent weeks, they’re still much higher than normal, and could likely rise again...
