South High School wrestling coach Jerry Sisneros was placed on paid administrative leave earlier this week and is not with the Colts at the Class 4A state high school wrestling championships in Denver, according to the Pueblo Chieftain.

Pueblo City Schools (D60) spokesman Scott Jones on Friday said Sisneros is on “indefinite” leave.

“He is on paid administrative leave pending an evaluation of a recent personal matter at South,” Jones said. “Because it is personnel-related, we are declining further comment.”

According to several sources, Sisneros was allegedly involved in an altercation with a student earlier this week at the school. No one would confirm whether that altercation was physical in nature.
