A high school wrestling coach is out of jail on bond, after investigators say he sexually assaulted a student. 

Eric Dodson, 23, surrendered to Thomas County Sheriff's deputies Tuesday.

Investigators say a Thomas County Central High School student was involved in an inappropriate relationship with Dodson, and he is now facing sexual assault charges. 

He submitted a letter of resignation and is no longer an employee with the Thomas County School System. 

Dodson was employed as a teacher at Thomas County Middle School.  He was hired as a full-time employee in December of 2015. 

He coached for the high school wrestling team after school.
