"Your story revealed we were wrong about him and we needed to cut ties with him," Regis Jesuit High School spokeswoman Charisse Broderick King said.
"We accepted his resignation Thursday," she said.
Parents, who asked that we not use their names, told 9Wants to Know Kyle Dodd announced his decision to resign as coach of the Parker Bears youth baseball team in an email to parents after the story aired.
9NEWS aired a story Wednesday that showed Dodd having his young players sell raffle tickets for some prizes he did not own or have access to.
Dodd and some of his players sold raffle tickets outside the King Soopers at Jordan Road and Lincoln Avenue on April 14. There were pictures of numerous prizes.
9Wants to Know discovered some of the prizes were for sale at Field of Dreams, a local sports memorabilia store, where manager Matthew Shepard says he hadn't given anyone permission to raffle off the items.
9Wants to Know's investigation also discovered Dodd has stolen money from a kids' organization in 2003 and put false statements on his Regis Jesuit High School biography page, where he is a football coach.
Parker Police told 9NEWS Thursday that the department launched a criminal investigation after seeing what 9Wants to Know uncovered.
The investigation is in its early stages.
"We'd like to talk to anyone who may have purchased a raffle ticket or who knows someone who has," police spokeswoman Sherry Corcoran said. "We'd also like to talk to parents of any kids who may have sold raffle tickets."
Anyone with information can call Parker Police at 303-472-1532.
