Irons pleads guilty to fraud
ST. LOUIS -- One of the most successful high school basketball coaches in Missouri history pleaded guilty Thursday to federal charges of wire fraud and mail fraud.
Floyd Irons entered the plea in U.S. District Court in St. Louis in connection with real estate purchases he made in 2005. He could face up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine. Restitution is mandatory.
Irons spent 33 years at Vashon High School in St. Louis, leading the boys team to 10 state championships. He was forced out in 2006 after an internal audit of the school alleged money had been mismanaged.
