CSN: Coach charged in pot bust no longer employed

Posted: Updated:

The athletic director of College of Southern Nevada said an assistant baseball coach charged in connection with an alleged marijuana growth operation has not been employed with the school since May.

In a statement released Friday, CSN Athletic Director Marc Morse said he and the school were "surprised" about the arrest of Ezekial Parraz.

Parraz, 29, was arrested Thursday after police raided his home where 186 marijuana plants were found.

Parraz was charged with possession of a controlled substance and intent to sell.

Morse indicated Parraz was a part-time employee with the school. Parraz' contract expired May 31, Morse said.

The following is Morse's statement released:

"The college and I are surprised and saddened by this news. Assistant baseball coach Zeke Parraz' part-time contract with the college expired, as is customary, May 31, and he is not currently employed at CSN. This matter must now proceed through the court system."

Parraz was booked into Clark County Detention Center.
