Ferris HS football coach Jim Sharkey

KHQ has learned that the Shoshone County Prosecutor's office will not file criminal charges against former Ferris High School football coach Jim Sharkey.

Sharkey was accused of using a hot dog bun to simulate a sex act in front of players at a leadership camp in summer of 2016.

While no criminal charges will be brought, Spokane Public Schools says their investigation remains ongoing. Sharkey is currently on administrative leave from a teaching position, however we learned in March that his coaching contract will not be renewed.

Sharkey teaches a fitness and leadership class.
