Shaun Wiemer was allowed to return to Gulf High School on Tuesday after being on paid leave amid an investigation into accusations that he choked one of his physical education students.

"In general, we felt it was appropriate to return him to work," Pasco school district employee relations director Kevin Shibley said, explaining that he discussed the situation with law enforcement officials who did not press charges against Wiemer.

Wiemer will not continue as Gulf's head baseball coach, though, assistant principal Doug Elias said.

"He had resigned his head coaching position" even before the investigation, Elias said. "He wanted to spend more time with his children."

The school posted an ad for the job late Monday.
