PHOENIX - A high school basketball and volleyball coach in Goodyear has been arrested on suspicion of having a sexual relationship with one of her students, police said Tuesday.

Susan Jayne Anderson, 28, was arrested Monday night at her home in Goodyear and was being held in a Maricopa County jail on $18,000 bond, according to authorities.

Police said Anderson is accused of carrying on an ongoing sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl she coached, police said.

"We believe that this started when the student was 15," police spokesman John Rowan told The Arizona Republic.

Anderson had coached for Goodyear's Desert Edge since 2004 and passed a background check when she was hired, according to school officials.

She also is a first-year fitness teacher at Centerra Mirage Elementary School in Goodyear.

Both districts said Anderson is on administrative leave and said there's no history of similar complaints against her.
