On Tuesday, November 14, 2017, a Liberal High School administrator contacted the Liberal Police Department regarding an allegation of inappropriate touching of students by a faculty member. Two female student athletes had reported their track coach, Tyson McGuire, had touched them inappropriately at separate times while treating them for sports related injuries.
